Boosting employment, growing the housing sector, improving educational attainment, upgrading infrastructure and tackling climate change are some of the key priorities highlighted in Argyll and Bute Council’s latest Corporate Plan.
At a recent meeting, councillors approved a new Corporate Plan for 2023-2027. It sets out the council’s strategic direction and outlines its priorities for the future in supporting local communities.
A key element of the updated plan is a new Annual Business Plan, which provides details on activity planned for the next financial year and explains how the council will measure its progress.
The aim of the Business Plan, which will be refreshed each year, is to bring more focus and scrutiny on the delivery and performance of the council against its top priorities. This will demonstrate more clearly the link between strategic priorities and performance.
Further information on both the Corporate and Business Plans is available on the council website https://www.argyll-bute.gov.uk/moderngov/ieIssueDetails.aspx?IId=134303&PlanId=0&Opt=3#AI164488
