A clear focus is required to support the central city over the coming three years. Without a vibrant central city, the wider city will struggle.

Changes to our Community Outcomes and Strategic Priorities

The Council approved a new 2020 strategic framework on 19 December 2019 and this is currently part of the consultation document on the annual plan.

Information on our revised Community Outcomes and Strategic Priorities is currently being developed.

What this means

A clear focus is required to support the central city over the coming three years. Without a vibrant central city, the wider city will struggle.

How we will get there

Improve the condition, safety and accessibility of streets and public spaces in the central city.

Coordinate marketing and promotion of the central city as a great place to visit, work, invest and live.

Coordinate a programme to promote, support and build social innovation and social enterprise.
