Strategic plan 2014 - 2018

Our strategic plan sets out the County Council's priorities, promises and values for 2014 - 2018 to the people of Nottinghamshire.

The following priorities represent what we plan to do with each service we provide. The documents below are taken from the strategic plan: 

Our vision is to make Nottinghamshire a better place to live, work and visit. 

Our values 

To deliver our plan we want to help staff utilise their skills and experience to find innovative and creative approaches and new ways of working.

Our plan will be built on the following three values. We will use these values to guide our decision making through the years ahead. 

Treating people fairly

We will: 

  • create a culture which treats people fairly and where resources are targeted to meet the needs of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged
  • make sure that we focus on improving the lives of those least able to help themselves – the most vulnerable children, young people and adults in our communities
  • make sure that those who need the most support get it so that everyone gets the opportunity to fulfil their potential
  • deliver high standards of customer care and respond to what we hear from our customers. 

 Value for money 

The amount of money we have to spend will reduce considerably. In order to protect front-line services as much as we can, we will need to make sure that:

  • spend every penny wisely and effectively 
  • live within our means 
  • continue to make sure that all spend is cost effective. 

Working together 

We act as a community leader for Nottinghamshire and we will work with our partners and residents to ensure we: 

  • prioritise resources to get the best for our communities 
  • make choices only once we have listened to what communities want and need.

To be more efficient we will work more closely with our partners across the public, business and voluntary sector. By joining forces with others we can make sure we deliver improved outcomes.
