Building a greener, fairer and better Gloucester is the commitment set out in the city council’s new Council Plan.

The plan which comes before the cabinet and council later this month outlines the priorities and promises for the city council over the next three years.

They include three main priorities: building greener, healthier, and more inclusive communities; making Gloucester a sustainable city of diverse culture and opportunity; and ensuring the council is both socially responsible and empowering.

The new vision is needed to succeed the previous Council Plan and Council Plan extension, which ran from 2017-2020 and 2020-2021 respectively.

It also sets out how the council will work with partners and residents to achieve the best outcomes for everyone in Gloucester.

The publication follows a six-week consultation which took place at the end of last year which saw residents feed into the plan.

The majority of respondents backed the council’s focus on tackling inequalities and also climate change and the drive to take into account the environmental implications of all its decisions.

The city council has pledged to become a net-zero emission local authority by 2030.

Councillor Hannah Norman, Deputy Leader of Gloucester City Council, said: “This Council Plan sets out how we aim to build a greener, fairer, better Gloucester for residents. We will continue to help regenerate the city and to make it a great place to live, work and visit while taking seriously our responsibilities to future generations and addressing inequalities.”
