Denbighshire County Council is developing a new Corporate Plan for 2012-17.
This will define the authority's priorities and the outcomes it aims to deliver for its communities.
During the past year, the council has undertaken a considerable amount of consultation and engagement with residents, its staff, and elected members.
This helped to identify priorities for the new Corporate Plan. O
Engagement work has included the following:
· A Residents’ Survey: 2,256 households responded to a survey which included questions about the biggest issues facing our communities.
· A Public Survey: 1,228 people responded to a survey on our website and in our leisure centres, libraries, One-Stop-Shops and council reception areas.
· Workshops with young people: run with the Denbighshire Youth Council and Student Councils in our High Schools.
The council says it has developed draft priorities to reflect what people have told it, and we would now like to know what others think before it finalises and publishes its new Corporate Plan.
Proposed priorities are:
1. Developing the local economy and communities
2. Improving school buildings and standards for all
3. Improving roads
4. Protecting vulnerable people and ensuring they are able to live as independently as possible
5. Providing a clean environment
6. Ensuring access to good quality housing
7. Modernising the council to deliver efficiencies and improve services for itsw customers.
This consultation is open until Tuesday 11th September.
Further information is also available online at www.denbighshire.gov.uk/corporateplan. T
Final draft of our Corporate Plan will be presented to elected members on Tuesday 9th October for agreement.
