Strategies and policies

It is important that we have strategies and policies in place in order to ensure that our long-term goals translate into actions on the front line and that we have efficient and effective processes. It is through this that we can deliver high quality services and improve outcomes in our communities.


Corporate Strategy

‚ÄčA refreshed Corporate Strategy was approved by Councillors at the full Council meeting on 16 November 2021.
The strategy addresses the economic impact of the pandemic on the borough and pledges ongoing support for businesses and activity to increase jobs and skills.
It also moves forward major developments and initiatives into their next phase of build or launch, creating key assets for the future.
These include the launch of the Astley Hall visitor experience, the opening of the Tatton Gardens Extra Care facility and the ongoing development of Strawberry Meadows - the new state of the art industrial hub. New initiatives such as development of affordable homes and improvements to community facilities are also on the cards along with a refresh of the economic development strategy.
Most importantly the strategy responds to the needs of communities, doing more for neighbourhoods right across the borough by enhancing essential services and facilities.
The Corporate Strategy identifies our key priorities as a council. These are:

  • Involving residents in improving their local area and equality of access for all
  • Clean, safe, and healthy homes and communities
  • A strong local economy
  • An ambitious Council that does more to meet the needs of residents and the local area

 Addressing climate change remains a key theme throughout the strategy and outlines specific council actions to encourage wider engagement and participation
