Council considers 2011-15 business plan
12:01am 6th October 2011
City of York Councillors will be asked to approve the five key priorities for the council at a meeting this week (Thursday 6th October).
The council’s priorities for the next five years are outlined in a draft Council Plan, which outlines what the council will aim to achieve between 2011 and 2015.
The five proposed priorities are:
- Create jobs and grow the economy, for example through the York Business Conference.
- Get York moving, for example through York’s bid for funding for Access York.
- Build strong communities, for example through the work we’re doing with snow wardens
- Protect vulnerable people; for example through the work to review and improve our care provision for older people in the city
- Protect the environment, for example through our work to reduce carbon emissions.
Kersten England, chief executive, City of York Council, said:
“The draft plan spells out some important changes to the way we do business as well as to what we will be delivering.
“We all know that we will all be involved in hard decisions about the future of the organisation, some of which will result in changes to the way we work. The Council Plan will focus our work on the things that will make the biggest difference to York over the next four years.”
