Corporate plan

The Corporate Plan is an internal business planning document that sets out the council's future priorities and objectives.

Why do we need a Corporate Plan?

  • A clearly set Corporate Plan ensures that the council manages its resources effectively.
  • It ensures that projects can be delivered by the council's services and that enough capacity is available to deliver them.
  • It provides a focus for the council's Cabinet to plan its work - and the framework for the council's scrutiny function to hold the Cabinet to account.
  • It provides the framework for evaluating the council's performance.

Progress and Performance

Performance is reviewed regularly to ensure that we are on target to achieving our objectives.

The council's Corporate Management Team and the Scrutiny Committee monitor progress against the key projects, budgets and performance measures on a regular basis and take action where any activities are behind schedule or target. A report is also produced annually to highlight the key achievements.

Reviewing the Corporate Plan

The Corporate Plan is reviewed annually to ensure that the key projects and measures are still relevant, important and we are continuing to achieve the outcomes we set ourselves.
