Council Plan 2015-2019

The Council Plan 2015-2019 was approved and adopted at a meeting of Council on Thursday 17 September 2015 following a period of wide consultation. It is the Council's main policy document and directs everything we do.

The priorities in the Council Plan are set out below:

  • Decent Homes for All - Providing access to good quality housing that both reflects local need and supports employment

  • Strong Economy, Rich Environment - Supporting a strong economy that benefits from and values Eden's rich natural and built

  • Thriving Communities - Working in partnership, enabling communities to be active, secure, healthy and connected

  • Quality Council - Delivering accessible, effective and value for money services

The Council Plan 2015-2019 (PDF: 1MKb / 16 pages)is monitored every six months to ensure good progress is being made.

Portfolio Plans

Each of the Council's six portfolios has its own portfolio plan, which sets out how the priorities and objectives in the Council Plan will be delivered over the coming year.  The portfolio plans contain specific actions and targets and progress is monitored at six monthly intervals. Four of the six portfolio plans were revised following a number of changes to portfolios, which were agreed at Council on 14 July 2016.
