Welcome to our council plan

This Council Plan sets out Gloucester City Council’s strategic direction over the next three years and how it intends to deliver its vision through a set of priorities and promises that are underpinned by its core values. The Plan sets out the vision for our Council, our partners and our residents to build a greener, fairer, better Gloucester. It establishes what we will be doing, and how we will direct our resources, to achieve our ambitions as we work towards improving the lives of everyone who lives in, works in and visits Gloucester.

The priorities that set out how we will achieve our vision are:

  • Building greener, healthier, and more inclusive communities
  • Building a sustainable city of diverse culture and opportunity
  • Building a socially responsible and empowering council

The vision, priorities and promises, guided by the Administration’s key objectives, are driven by a strong sense of environmental responsibility and a desire to tackle inequality, and the Council Plan seeks to place these two overarching themes at the heart of every strategic objective. The priorities and promises offer a focus on people, place, and the council, and the promises have been written to reflect the Administration’s plans and aspirations for the city, while also ensuring that the council is equipped to continue delivering quality services and recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Council Plan highlights the important roles of many stakeholders in achieving the council’s vision, with a clear focus on working with others to achieve our ambitions.

The success of the Council Plan will be monitored, and performance will be reported regularly.
