The Council Plan detailing the priorities and aspirations for 2019-2023 was approved at The Cabinet on Monday 7 October.

Cllr Tony Jefferson, Leader of Stratford-on-Avon District Council says: "The Council Plan has been developed in partnership with The Cabinet and the Management Team and has been subject to an extensive consultation process, with staff, stakeholders and residents.

"The Council Plan 2019-23, along with the longer term Vision to 2030 will now be recommended to Council for approval."

Council Plan 2019-23

The plan sets out our vision for Stratford-on-Avon District as a place in 2030 and for local government in 2030.

The core of the plan is a set of ambitions and actions for the Council over the next four years under five key objectives:

  • Working on regional, national and international stages
  • Responding to the climate emergency
  • Enhancing the quality of Stratford-on-Avon as place
  • Nurturing a thriving, innovative and inclusive economy
  • Putting residents and communities centre stage


Shared Intelligence was commissioned in April 2019 to help facilitate the process of developing a Vision and new Council Plan. This approach was taken in response to the findings of an LGA Corporate Peer Challenge follow up visit. The feedback referred to the need for the Council to deliver a new Corporate Strategy and Vision 'at pace'.

Shared Intelligence has guided The Cabinet and Management Team through a process to ensure that a crisp compelling document has been produced with input from all key stakeholders.
