Corporate Priorities

On 24 February 2016 the Council approved its Corporate Strategy.

Our Vision is:

‘To Enable people to live, work and prosper and for business to thrive in West Somerset’.

The Strategy provides a clear direction for the Council to follow, with four key priority areas where the Council will concentrate its efforts and resources between April 2016 and March 2020.

The key elements of the Strategy are:

  • refreshed high-level Corporate Priorities for the Council,
  • design principles for our organisation,
  • refreshed vision and
  • clarity on the role and purpose of the Council.

The Corporate Strategy is not intended to capture everything that the Council does nor does it include the detail of our work and projects. That is the role of the Corporate, Operational and Individual Plans which will flow from the Corporate Strategy.

The Corporate Strategy is the key part of the ‘Golden Thread’ which sets corporate objectives from which key actions flow.

The illustration below shows the ‘Golden Thread’ and where the Corporate Strategy fits within this:
