Introduction from Leader, Councillor Paul Foster
"A healthy and happy community, flourishing together in a safer and fairer borough that is led by a council recognised for being innovative, financially sustainable and accountable".
This time last year we set our new vision and four key priorities. I'm pleased and excited to say that despite challenging conditions, we are now seeing this vision come to life. We have delivered actions to make sure that we are an exemplary council.
We are doing more to grow a fair local economy by supporting businesses, setting up a credit union and developing big plans for transforming the town centre. We are seeing more good quality homes, real action to reduce carbon emissions and improvements in the wellbeing of our residents. Most importantly, we are seeing our communities thrive - and we will do even more over the next 12 months to give our residents the best possible opportunities.
In this strategy we retain a relentless commitment to our vision and priorities. We will refresh our project activity to enable us to support more residents, deliver more activity in neighbourhoods and undertake new developments across the borough.
I hope that as a council we can continue to work together with you to achieve happy, healthy and flourishing communities.
