Draft Council Plan 2019 to 2023 Consultation
We are inviting your comments on our draft Council Plan for 2019 to 2023, before Tuesday 19 March 2019. The Council Plan is our main policy document. It contains our priorities and directs everything we do.
Draft Council Plan priorities
The draft Council Plan for 2019 to 2023 identifies three priorities:
- Council - efficiency and cost effectiveness;
- Economy - supporting business, tourism and communities; and
- Health and Well-being - homes, warmth, happiness and health.
Beneath these priorities are a number of sub-headings and actions, representing our goals and promises.

Comment on the draft Council Plan
The deadline for comments on the draft Council Plan is 5pm on Tuesday 19 March 2019.
What happens after the consultation?
After we receive, assess and include any appropriate information from the responses to the draft Council Plan, Councillors will consider the Plan. This will take place after the district elections in May 2019. We expect the Council will approve and adopt the final Council Plan 2019 to 2023 at the Council meeting in July 2019.
If we adopt the draft Council Plan 2019 to 2023 it will replace the current Council Plan 2015 to 2019.
Current Council Plan 2015 to 2019
The priorities in the Council Plan 2015 to 2019 are:
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 environment;
Thriving Communities - Working in partnership, enabling communities to be active, secure, healthy and connected; and
Quality Council - Delivering accessible, effective and value for money services.
