Council Plan 2015-19

Our Council Plan for 2015 to 2019 is based on our statutory responsibilities and the priorities of our administration.

The plan is built around three 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 residents - to ensure it delivers the services they want and works in partnership with local communities.

The plan was formally approved by Full Council on Thursday 8 October 2015 following consultation with residents, businesses and staff.

During the consultation we asked residents and businesses for their views through a range of channels including an online survey and face-to-face drop in sessions as well as feedback submitted by post, email and at drop-off points in libraries and West Offices.

In total we received 344 responses online and 184 from drop-in sessions and additional feedback.

We have published the results of the Council Plan consultaion in 2015 on our Open Data Platform.

Progress against Council Plan priorities

We closely monitor how we are doing against each of our Council Plan priorities. We produce annual and quarterly reports containing details of our performance, progress and achievements for that period of time.

The priorities reflected in our Council Plan and agreed budget will also be embedded in our approach to Service Planning. Directorate service plans for 2017 to 2018, produced at the start of the financial year as per the councils performance management framework are available via our Open Data Platform.
