New Corporate Plan Adopted for the Year Ahead

Following a full Council meeting on Monday 18th March 2024, East Staffordshire Borough Council has adopted a refreshed Corporate Plan, which outlines how the Council will deliver and build upon its many services and how it will support residents over the next 12 months.

The refreshed Corporate Plan illustrates the achievements from the past 12 months, and details how East Staffordshire Borough Council will continue to deliver its corporate priorities over the forthcoming year.

The 2024/25 Corporate Plan outlines East Staffordshire Borough Council’s five overarching corporate priorities:

•    Improving Local Democracy
•    Creating a Prosperous East Staffordshire
•    Developing a Green New Deal for East Staffordshire
•    Protecting Our Heritage
•    Standing up for our Communities

A number of other objectives for 2024/25 are also set out, including the regeneration of Uttoxeter, including both the former Co-op site and the Maltings site, the Council’s commitment to tackling envirocrime, and many more. All of these objectives can be found in detail in the Corporate Plan found on the Council’s website.

Cllr Michael Fitzpatrick, Leader of the Council, said: “I am glad to see the refreshed Corporate Plan be approved for the year ahead. This updated plan aims to show our residents, partners and staff, the Council’s intentions during 2024/25.”

“The last year has seen the Council deliver a number of services with aims of creating a prosperous East Staffordshire. This past year saw the Council commission a ‘Cost of Living Advisor Service’ from the third sector to provide budgeting support to struggling households, helping connect them to other existing community services.”

“The Council has also undertaken a range of work towards ensuring the right to food, including the provision of funding for free food providers and community centres for the development of Community Kitchens. This initiative intends to find a community led solution which helps to address nutrition and food poverty in local areas.”
