Lancashire County Council unveils revamped Corporate Priorities
Wednesday, October 6, 2021
An ambitious vision to make Lancashire the best place to live, work, visit and prosper has been unveiled.
Lancashire County Council’s cabinet will this week consider a refreshed and revamped set of priorities which aim to put the needs of Lancashire people at the heart of everything the council does.
The four priorities – delivering better services; protecting our environment, supporting economic growth and caring for the vulnerable – crystalise the focus of the council for the next four years.
Cllr Phillippa Williamson, leader of Lancashire County Council, said: "Our revamped corporate priorities will lay the foundations of the work the authority will undertake over the coming years, as we strive to make Lancashire the best place to live, work, visit and prosper.
"These simple yet powerful priorities set out the direction we want to take the council and are underpinned by our core values of being supportive, innovative, respectful and collaborative.
"The people of Lancashire have been brilliant in their response to the pandemic, supporting each other and our communities, and we are very proud and inspired by what collectively we have all achieved.
"But we firmly believe exciting and more prosperous times lie ahead as we work together to rejuvenate Lancashire, making it the best place it can be."
If agreed by the cabinet, the priorities will be discussed at this month’s meeting of the full council.
Cabinet will also consider a new communication strategy that will support the delivery of the priorities.
