Nottingham City Council has revealed a new two-year plan for the city’s renewed priorities and direction because of the coronavirus pandemic
The Labour-run Council’s original plan had been heavily affected by the pandemic leading to a revised edition.
The document reveals the plans sets out the Council’s vision, its key aims and ambitions and how it intends to deliver services and meet its targets.
City Council Deputy Leader, Cllr Sally Longford, said: “We set out our Council Plan for this period in 2019 but a lot has changed since then, including a global pandemic and a Government review of the council, so it was important for us to look again at it.
“Our Recovery and Improvement Plan is clear that if we are to achieve our aims and live up to our aspirations for Nottingham, we must be prepared to rethink what we do and how we do it.
“This refreshed Council Plan does that and helps us to plot a new course for the council which remains ambitious for Nottingham and its people while ensuring our finances are sustainable so we can continue delivering the modern, efficient services that local people deserve.”
The plan’s eleven outcomes include:
- Clean and Connected Communities
- Keeping Nottingham Working
- Carbon Neutral by 2028
- Safer Nottingham
- Child-Friendly Nottingham
- Healthy and Inclusive
- Keeping Nottingham Moving
- Improve the City Centre
- Better Housing
- Financial Stability
- Serving People Well
The plan is still in draft and will be agreed at Full Council in September, following a public consultation.
