The services delivered by the Council and our partner organisations are governed by a wide range of plans, policies and strategies.

Council strategic framework 2022–2027

Our Council Strategic Framework 2022–2027 supports our existing arrangements to continue practicing good governance, and improvements over the next five years to deliver the best possible outcomes for our communities.

Community Planning

Working with our Community Planning partners, we produce the Community Plan to drive forward all the projects which contribute to our joint objectives, and the Local Outcomes Improvement Plan (LOIP) to show whether or not we have achieved our goals. You can read more about the Community Plan and Local Outcomes Improvement Plan on the Community Planning website.

Service plans, policies and strategies

In addition, the Council has a range of plans, policies and strategies which are based on a particular activity. These include topics such as Housing and Waste Management.

Many of these are published elsewhere on our website and a basic topic search should help you to find the policy you are interested in.

All of the key plans, policies and strategies within the Council must first be approved by Cabinet, while scrutiny is carried out by the Governance and Scrutiny Committee.

For more information on this please see our Committees page.
