Corporate Plan sets out South Kesteven District Council's vision

A new Corporate Plan that sets out South Kesteven District Council's vision for the district for the next three years was today considered by SKDC's Cabinet and recommended to full council for adoption.

The council wants South Kesteven to be the best district in which to live, work and visit and has prioritised five key areas to underpin and drive this ambition. The five priority areas are:

  • Growth and the Economy
  • Housing that Meets the Needs of all Residents
  • Healthy and Strong Communities
  • A Clean and Sustainable Environment
  • A High Performing Council

Leader Cllr Kelham Cooke said: "South Kesteven is a district full of promise and potential. It is home to innovative entrepreneurs and savvy start-ups; a base for global enterprise; and an inviting landscape perfectly situated in the heart of England. We have much to be proud of, and much to offer. Our Corporate Plan clearly sets out how South Kesteven District Council intends to meet that promise and potential.

"Our vision is to be the best district in which to live, work, and visit. We will continue to support businesses and work with partners in all sectors to create the right conditions for sustainable and dynamic growth so that our local economy not only recovers from the Coronavirus pandemic but recovers stronger than ever.

"Alongside our economy, we will focus on providing homes for our residents, meeting our environmental obligations and supporting initiatives that strengthen our communities."

The new Corporate Plan aligns vision, corporate priorities and individual performance enabling the council to monitor, measure and evaluate its work at every level, driving performance to further improve delivery of services to residents and businesses.

It sits alongside a corporate restructure and amended budget to set a clear blueprint for Covid-19 recovery and restart, and beyond. The Corporate Plan will now be presented to SKDC's Council meeting on 1 October.
