Bracknell Forest Council sets out future priorities for 2019 to 2023

The future priorities of Bracknell Forest Council will be considered by its decision making executive on Tuesday, 22 October.

The proposed Council Plan reflects the pledges the majority party made to residents in the 2019 local election and will provide the council with a clear direction of travel for the next 4 years.

The plan focuses on the things that residents have said matter most to them and will be based around 6 key themes:

  • caring for residents and your family
  • value for money
  • education and skills
  • economic resilience
  • communities
  • protecting and enhancing the environment.

Leader of Bracknell Forest Council, Cllr Paul Bettison OBE, said:

“Our Council Plan sets out our key objectives for the period 2019-2023. With inevitable challenging times ahead particularly in relation to funding, these objectives will provide focus for our future actions to provide essential services to our residents, spending money wisely on clearly identified needs.

“We have always been proud of Bracknell Forest as being the borough of opportunity and a place where diversity and culture are recognised as a strength. The Council Plan will be at the heart of everything the council does and shows our commitment to residents that through strong leadership and sound financial management, Bracknell Forest will remain prosperous, as well as a good place to live, work and visit.”

If the proposed Council Plan 2019 to 2023 is approved by the executive, it will be endorsed by full council on Wednesday, 27 November 2019.
