At its meeting on 26 September, Flintshire County Council's Cabinet will be asked to endorse the detailed Council Plan 2017-18 prior to adoption by the County Council for final publication.
The Plan for 2017-23 has been reviewed and updated to reflect the key priorities of the Council for the 5 year term of the new administration.
The super-structure of the plan remains the same as previous plans and comprises six impact focussed priorities and relevant sub priorities, rather than eight. The six priorities take a long term view of projects and ambitions over the next five years. They are:
Â· Supportive Council
Â· Ambitious Council
Â· Learning Council
Â· Green Council
Â· Connected Council
Â· Serving Council
The Council Plan is published in a similar format to previous years: highlighting objectives and actions and referencing national issues which could impact upon achievement of the priorities. The Plan fits alongside the Medium Term Financial Strategy for 2017-2020 and is in two parts. Part 1 is the statement of our aims and intentions. Part 2 describes the targets and milestones by which the achievements will be measured.
Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of Flintshire County Council said:
'This Plan sets out our key priorities to support and enhance residents' lives. It's pleasing to be reviewing this Plan on the back of the recent report from the Local Government Data Unit which puts Flintshire as the most improved Council over last 12 months. This is a significant achievement, given the financial pressures that we are facing and it wouldn't have been possible without a dedicated and committed workforce.
"Despite continued financial austerity, we will remain committed and ambitious as a Council to continue to deliver for our local communities.'
Cabinet Member for Corporate Management and Assets, Councillor Billy Mullin, said:
"The plan has been refreshed and updated to reflect the key priorities of the Council for the next five years. The Council is making good progress in areas highlighted as priorities. The Plan also includes national and local issues which could impact our priorities and why. The important thing is Flintshire is continuing to reach and surpass its targets and is setting new priorities to develop the performance to sustain the solid performance of the Council every year."
