Conversation on the Borough Plan moves to consultation phase

The Council recently launched the consultation on its proposed Borough Plan for 2024-2028, following extensive engagement that took place over the summer.

During the last few months, residents, community groups and partners have joined a conversation to help shape what the proposed Borough Plan would look like. Those contributions have helped shape the proposals, which set out the four-year plan for the borough and focuses on everyone playing their part and working together for a stronger future.

The draft Borough Plan sets out a number of priorities, grouped under three main themes - Thriving Communities, Caring Communities and Sustainable Communities. It also highlights the significant financial challenge facing all local public services and establishes that there will be some hard choices ahead and new ways of working will be required.

The Council wants to be sure it is taking the right approach to working together and improving our communities and local services over the next four years. This proposed plan sets out our early thinking in an ongoing conversation with local people about the strengths of our borough, as well as the opportunities and challenges it faces.

The next step will be to develop a clear and detailed plan to deliver agreed priorities. Your feedback will help shape that plan and guide everything the Council and its partners do across the borough.
