The plan was approved by Executive and formally approved by Full Council in October 2020, following consultation with residents, businesses and staff.

An update to the plan, recognising the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, was approved by Executive in May 2021.

Our Council Plan 2015 to 2019, was based on our statutory responsibilities and 3 key priorities:

  • a prosperous city for all - where local businesses can thrive and residents have good quality jobs, housing and opportunities
  • a focus on frontline services - to ensure all residents, particularly the least advantaged, can access reliable services and community facilities
  • a council that listens to its residents - to ensure it delivers the services they want and works in partnership with local communities

In our Council Plan for 2011 to 2015, we set out our priorities and produced a 'high level' action plan for each of our 5 priorities:

  • create jobs and grow the economy
  • get York moving
  • build strong communities
  • protect vulnerable people
