Corporate plan

The current corporate plan sets out our priorities for 2016/20.

The corporate plan provides an overview of the council’s vision, core purpose and ethos and sets the scene within which all services operate. The council has approved the following four priorities:

Community Leadership

The council continues to face up to the challenges presented by the current economic climate by placing an increased emphasis on the things that matter most to the people of the district. As community leaders, we are committed to working with all those who can help us to have a positive impact on life in the district. This will help us to support our key partnerships to ensure they are really effective and can deliver the outcomes the district needs.

Health and Wellbeing

A range of actions to support the positive health and wellbeing of residents in the district have been identified. This includes continuing work to improve the quality and availability of housing, including council housing stock and building new one bedroomed properties, housing renewal, particularly in the West End of Morecambe, and improvements in the private rented sector. We will work to ensure the standard of new and existing housing meets current regulations and promotes safe, high quality, energy efficient housing.

Clean and Green Places

Lancaster district has much to offer. To ensure that it maintains and builds upon its reputation of being clean, green and safe, the council will encourage local communities and individuals to in their local area and become involved in protecting and improving the quality of local areas, parks and public spaces in a way that is sustainable.

Sustainable Economic Growth

Lancaster district has exceptional opportunities and a pressing demographic need to develop its economy. The main prospects for economic growth relate to energy including nuclear and renewable energy; the knowledge sector developing around Lancaster’s two universities; the health sector; and the Visitor Economy, capitalising on the district’s outstanding culture, heritage and entertainment offer, its beautiful coastline and stunning natural landscapes.
