Draft Council Plan 2020-2030

Closed 7 Nov 2019

Opened 24 Sep 2019


Allerdale Borough Council has devised a draft Council Plan which outlines the Council's priorities and objectives for the next ten years.

In putting this plan together we have developed the priorities and objectives that we believe will help to make Allerdale a place where our communities can thrive.   To ensure that everyone can prosper in our area we need to work towards a sustainable future – for our economy, our environment, and our communities – as well as creating a sustainable footing for the Council so that we can continue to provide the services that our communities need. 

There are key things that we need to do to deliver a sustainable future including: making sure that the Council is on a sound financial footing; ensuring we deliver high quality services; making sure our neighbourhoods are clean and tidy as well as addressing wider environmental issues; supporting our towns as key service centres for all of our communities; taking action to ensure we have the right homes in the right places; supporting our communities to be healthy, active and engaged; and investing to support businesses so there are good employment opportunities to keep people in and attract people to Allerdale.  

We recognise that only through collaborating with others will we achieve our ambitions for our area. Building positive partnerships with the people and communities we serve and our partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors is key to all of the ambitions set out in this plan and it will be vital for us to make sure that we fulfil our role as local leaders able to influence and work well with others.   We will be inviting comments on this draft Plan from a wide range of organisations and people so that they can give us their views as our plans take shape.  

Why We Are Consulting

We are now consulting with you to ensure that these priorities for the next few years are right and that the key objectives are what we should be concentrating on.
