Community Matters Corporate Plan 2020 to 2024
Our corporate plan plays an important role in making sure the council's objectives are met for the people and communities in the New Forest district area.
It sets out the overarching commitments and vision for the council over the next four years, the priorities of each portfolio, and the values that underpin the delivery of the plan.
The plan focuses on the challenges we face, and all that we can do as an organisation to address them.
It recognises the financial constraints in which we operate, and builds on the strong financial position we have created and the services our community want.
We remain ambitious in setting priorities that matter to the people of the New Forest and we put our community first.
Sustainability and the protection of our natural resources, as well as support for the local economy, run through this plan.
With each portfolio contributing towards these two significant issues and placing them at the heart of all our decisions.
Our commitments also include new approaches to providing more homes for local people, responding to the specific needs of our communities, maintaining the unique and special qualities of the environment, improving health and wellbeing, and ensuring the economic prosperity for the area both now and for the future.
The plan builds on the foundations already laid out, maintaining our commitment to financial sustainability and excellence in service delivery.
