Our Corporate Strategy

A County for everyone and a place to live your best life

Our Corporate Strategy guides everything we do as a Council. It has been informed by asking residents what is important to them.  

The priorities are reviewed every two years to reflect local needs. The strategy has been refreshed for 2024 and has four priorities:

Text - Corporate Strategy Performance

Council performance

To understand if we are delivering effectively against our Corporate Strategy we monitor our progress against key indicators. 

We produce performance reports on a quarterly basis. These reports help us to:

  • understand our overall progress
  • identify areas where we may need to do something differently 

Corporate performance reports and summary documents are submitted to Cabinet - these are available in the minutes for Cabinet meetings.
