A major new document setting out what the Council aims to achieve over
the next four years, was approved by Full Council last night (Thursday
19 April).

The Corporate Plan for 2012-16 sets out the council’s aims and
objectives for the next four years and contains eleven priorities which
will be supported by operational plans and reviewed on an annual basis.

Leader of the Council, Cllr. Clive Hart, said: “This plan sets out
our programme of eleven priorities for the next four years and the
outcomes we intend to deliver. We aim to improve the council and ensure
that the priority services identified by our residents will be delivered
efficiently, while ensuring we spend our limited budgets wisely.

“We’ve listened carefully to what local people have told us through
consultation, and it was clear that crime and anti-social behaviour and
clean streets are residents’ major priorities, which are contained in
the Corporate Plan. But this plan goes much further than that, aiming to
improve our economy to help get local people back to work, support
community and voluntary groups and get the best possible outcomes for

“All of the political parties have been fully involved with helping
to form this document, and this plan clearly sets out what residents can
expect from us over the next four years. Even though it’s a tough time
for the council, with funding being reduced, we’re still committed to
achieving as much as we can for the area with the resources we have.”


  1. Well that sounds like real politic speak. What exactly are they going to do? Is anyone any the wiser?

  2. You aren't missing much Anon. Its a watery document which anyone from any party could've written.
