Council Plan 2020

Our new Council Plan 2020 will build on and deliver the Council's vision to make South Gloucestershire a great place to live and work. It provides a framework for what we will focus on and how we will work, and includes an Action Plan which sets out what we plan to do, how we will do it, and how we will measure our performance.

The basis of the Council Plan is four key priorities which will inform the council’s policies and decision-making.  The key priorities and emerging commitments are based on what you, our residents, have told us are important, and what our day-to-day evidence
gathering suggests requires focus to improve outcomes for the people of South Gloucestershire. It is not a list, and does not seek to capture everything we do.
However we want to take this opportunity to sense check with our residents and organisations if you feel we have got the priorities right.

We have all faced the unprecedented challenge of the Coronavirus outbreak. This arrived at a time when the emerging Council Plan was to be released for public engagement and has drawn attention to the many roles and responsibilities of Local Authorities and our partners. We are of course well underway with a comprehensive emergency response but as we identify our commitments for the next four years and beyond, we recognise that some of these will need additional resource and attention for at least the
next 6-12 months and into a long-term economic and community recovery plan.

This consultation is open from 5th May 2020 to 26th July 2020

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
