Have your say on the 2023 – 2028
Draft Council Plan

Our Council Plan sets out the vision and approach we take to ensure our services and activities deliver our ambitions from 2023 to 2028.

Our Council needs your views to help us form the draft Council Plan – 2028, so that Elected Members can finalise and agree a Council Plan for 2023 – 2028 that’s inclusive of stakeholders’ views.

Public, stakeholder and staff consultations are taking place to seek views on the Plan.

Our Elected Members will look at the outcomes to be prioritised and achieved over the term of this Council, which is critical for the direction of the organisation and of significant importance for communities and residents.

Members across all parties had input into the draft plan. The consensus from Members was that four themes should be given the highest priority for the new Plan:

  • Economy
  • Travel, Connectivity and Infrastructure
  • Education and Learning
  • Health and Wellbeing

Under each priority, there are proposed strategic outcomes, which are discussed more fully in the draft Plan.

Once the consultation has been completed, the final draft Council Plan will be presented to members of Full Council on 28 February 2023 and once agreed, it will be reviewed annually to ensure delivery of the agreed outcomes.
