|Bracknell Forest Council News Release - New Council Plan endorsed by executive|
A significant step in agreeing the council’s new priorities for the borough for 2023-27 took place yesterday, when the decision making executive endorsed the draft Council Plan for approval by Council on 29 November.
The plan will look to improve local health, the environment, communities, and our economy over the next four years.
It sets out where the council will focus its attention, time and money.
The overall vision for the council in this period is to grow together and shape tomorrow. The plan has three key themes in line with that vision:
Once approved, the council will work with other relevant organisations like the NHS, community groups and businesses on the agreed priorities and projects.
Cllr Mary Temperton, leader of the council, said: “The draft Council Plan sets out the priorities for the borough for the next four years and aligns with the promises we made as part of our election manifesto.
“It sets out three main priorities for the council to focus its time and resources on until 2027. These are engaged and healthy communities, thriving and connected economy, and green and sustainable environment – all of these areas are important to our community. "
“The executive agreed the draft plan on Tuesday and I look forward to hearing the views of full council later on this month.”
You can find the full draft plan on the council’s website: Council Plan 2023 2027.pdf (bracknell-forest.gov.uk). Council will be asked to discuss the plan at its meeting on 29 November, where it is due to be given final approval.
