We are an ambitious, fair, inclusive, and responsible organisation which will put our communities at the heart of everything we do.
The Council will be recognised as a leader for supporting the health and wellbeing of our residents, protecting our environment, delivering sustainability, and innovation.
By proactively working with our partners the Council will strive to deliver cohesive communities that are well built, in the right place and served by appropriate infrastructure.
The Council will support existing business to thrive and seek to attract new businesses to create valued jobs and opportunities.
In developing this plan we have set ourselves realistic aims and objectives within six areas.
