THE ECONOMY, affordable housing and climate change are priorities for Stratford district.
Stratford District Council’s new Council Plan details its priorities and aspirations from 2023 until 2027 and will be a critical document in guiding the council’s allocation of resources.
SDC Leader Coun Susan Juned said: “The Council Plan and Vison has been produced with input from a wide range of key stakeholders and has been tested against a broad evidence base to ensure the right priorities are being targeted.
“It has been developed in partnership with the cabinet and management team and has been subject to an extensive consultation process, with staff, stakeholders and residents, which will now be recommended to council for approval.”
The six priorities set out in the plan are local economy, affordable, well built and maintained homes, health and wellbeing, climate change, delivery of service, and residents and communities.
An extract from the council plan reads: “The council will be recognised as a leader for supporting the health and wellbeing of our residents, protecting our environment, delivering sustainability and innovation.
“By proactively working with partners the council will strive to deliver cohesive communities that are well built, in the right place and served by appropriate infrastructure.
“The council will support existing business to thrive and seek to attract new businesses to create valued jobs and opportunities.”
