At its meeting on 26 September, Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet will be
asked to endorse the detailed Council Plan 2017-18 prior to adoption by the
County Council for final publication.
The Plan for 2017-23 has been reviewed and updated to reflect the key
priorities of the Council for the 5 year term of the new administration.
The super-structure of the plan remains the same as previous plans and
comprises six impact focussed priorities and relevant sub priorities, rather
than eight. The six priorities take a long term view of projects and ambitions
over the next five years. They are:
· Supportive Council
· Ambitious Council
· Learning Council
· Green Council
· Connected Council
· Serving Council
The Council Plan is published in a similar format to previous years:
highlighting objectives and actions and referencing national issues which could
impact upon achievement of the priorities. The Plan fits alongside the Medium
Term Financial Strategy for 2017-2020 and is in two parts. Part 1 is the
statement of our aims and intentions. Part 2 describes the targets and
milestones by which the achievements will be measured.
Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of Flintshire County Council said:
This Plan sets out our key priorities to support and enhance residents’ lives.
It’s pleasing to be reviewing this Plan on the back of the recent report from
the Local Government Data Unit which puts Flintshire as the most improved
Council over last 12 months. This is a significant achievement, given the
financial pressures that we are facing and it wouldnt have been possible
without a dedicated and committed workforce.
“Despite continued financial austerity, we will remain committed and ambitious
as a Council to continue to deliver for our local communities.
Cabinet Member for Corporate Management and Assets, Councillor Billy Mullin,
“The plan has been refreshed and updated to reflect the key priorities of the
Council for the next five years. The Council is making good progress in areas
highlighted as priorities. The Plan also includes national and local issues
which could impact our priorities and why. The important thing is Flintshire
is continuing to reach and surpass its targets and is setting new priorities to
develop the performance to sustain the solid performance of the Council every
