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 six priorities for the borough which are to make Ealing:

  • Prosperous
    By creating the right conditions for economic growth, enhancing opportunities for local people, providing affordable, high quality housing and helping young people to achieve at school and compete in the labour market.
  • Safer
    Driving improvements in reducing crime and the fear of crime, reducing the number of young people in the criminal justice system, improving the quality of private rented housing and safeguarding the most vulnerable people in the borough.
  • Healthier
    Improving public health through early intervention and prevention.  In particular to support residents with physical and mental health issues to be as independent as possible.
  • Cleaner
    Maintaining the quality and cleanliness of the public realm and supporting citizens to play an active role in enhancing their neighbourhoods.
  • Fairer
    Through the efficient and effective use of resources to deliver maximum benefits for residents and businesses.  Delivering world class customer service.
  • Accessible
    Delivering a sustainable and effective transport infrastructure and improving the parking service. 

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 four-year Corporate Plan sets out clearly our priorities and how we will contribute to making the vision a reality. It has specific, ambitious targets, all of which have a major positive impact on the quality of people’s lives.

The plan explains how the council must work ever more closely with other organizations, and also encourage and support residents to do things for themselves. A succinct summary called 'plan on page’ is available to read, which sums up the main points including setting out the four strategies that have been developed to achieve the priorities.
