Council priorities

The council is here to serve local residents and we want to put that at the heart of everything we do. We have listened very carefully to what you have been telling us and are making it a priority to deliver on the things that really matter to you. 

We have three top priorities for the borough which are:

  • Creating good jobs - rebuilding our economy, returning good well-paid jobs to our borough and delivering the next generation of genuinely affordable homes.
  • Tackling the climate crisis - greening our borough, cleaning our air and ensuring the borough we build is sustainable.
  • Fighting inequality - relentlessly tackling poverty and inequality that blights too many lives and disproportionately holds back all too many people from achieving their dreams and aspirations.

The cabinet, the council’s main decision-making body, will help drive forward the priorities and make sure that our services are meeting your needs.

The council's corporate plan shows how the council's three priorities will be worked towards, and measured, over the next four years.
