A NEW Corporate Plan has been published by Scarborough Council which sets out the authority’s vision and key aims for the next five years.

The plan also sets out the actions being taken to achieve those aims and the targets the council has established so it can assess whether or not those goals are being achieved.

A summary of the plan, which was first approved by councillors in July, is now available from the council’s Customer First centres.

Council Leader, Tom Fox, said: “We are all committed to improving the quality of life in the borough and this plan is designed to make sure we are all working towards this goal and that we achieve successful outcomes.

“There are many different issues that affect the quality of our lives and there are a wide variety of organisations involved – we need to work together effectively to make a real difference.”

The council’s vision is to “achieve the renaissance of the North Yorkshire coast by 2020”, supported by its mission “to be the best”.

In the Corporate Plan, it has set out its five key values: looking after the well-being of the borough, putting customers first, treating people fairly, valuing colleagues and honesty and integrity.

There are also four key aims – Safe and Healthy – sets out objectives relating to fear of crime, anti-social behaviour, drugs and alcohol, health and housing, Prosperous, Inclusive and Vibrant and Quality Environments.
