Corporate plan and priorities

We carried out a Community Survey to shape our vision, putting the Community at our heart, with five key priorities for the next three years.

Graphic of our 'heart' priorities which are: homes to be proud of, enable an economy that delivers for everyone, action on climate change, run an effective council and together, create opportunities for our communities.
