The service plans provide an important link between the high level ambitions and priorities of the Council and its day to day activity.
The Council is not unique in its approach to service planning. Indeed, producing service plans are a feature of most well run medium sized organisations. Clarity of purpose and understanding where we are now, where are going and how we will get there are clearly important components of any well run organisation.
It is important to keep in mind when looking at the service plans that they are not a finished product. They will always be work in progress and will continue to respond to the changing environment and pressures which the Council faces.
What is important however is that they provide clarity of purpose and focus. These two factors are essential given the economic and service pressures the Council faces today and in the future.
We hope you find the service plans a useful and informative read and as always, we welcome any feedback you may have.
