Council plan 2015-2019
Our council plan describes our priorities for 2015 to 2019.
We have chosen a four year period as it gives us time to properly plan ahead, without trying to speculate about what our communities will need and expect in the distant future.
It does not cover in detail everything that we do as a council (this will be covered by our service plans on an annual basis). Instead it features the activities where we will be focusing our efforts and where we want to see a real shift over those four years.
In putting the plan together, we have been guided by our simple vision:
Putting our communities first
As a council, we are here to serve and support our communities. Those communities include our residents and tenants, our businesses, our visitors, our students and our voluntary groups. It is these communities that make Chesterfield Borough a great place to live, work and visit. And it is these communities that we seek to put first as a council in all that we do.
This vision shows through in the recent work we have done on behalf of our communities, from transforming the historic Market Hall to securing five prestigious Green Flag awards for our parks, from attracting nationally recognised productions to our cultural venues to investing £52 million to achieve the Decent Homes Standard for all council homes.
Our commitment to this vision has led to rising levels of resident and tenant satisfaction with our services. It is evident in the many ways in which we regularly engage with our communities about those services.
