Penrith Town Council 2022 Business Plan Survey

Closed 31 Mar 2022

Opened 1 Mar 2022


Penrith Town Council has refreshed its business plan.

The aim of the business plan is to give residents a clear understanding of what the Town Council is trying to achieve and deliver. The plan details what the Town Council intends to focus on over the next few years and provides an agreed strategic framework for the Town Council to work within, enabling it to operate a coordinated approach for the best interests of all those who live and work in Penrith. It is a statement of the Council’s vision and priorities and provides an overview of the Council’s approach to improve the quality of life for the town’s residents, businesses, and visitors.

It is essential that for the Council to be responsive to important matters and consequently the 2019-2023 Council Business plan has been reviewed and refreshed to take into account:

  • Council Operations and Local Government Reorganisation in Cumbria 
  • Recovery from the effects of Covid-19 
  • Climate Change

The Covid-19 Pandemic has highlighted how important it is that the Council has the power and resources to respond and support community resilience.

The business plan helps the Council to minimise risks and justifies the budget and shows that the Council has planned its activities with care.
