Corporate Plan for 2020-24 which sets out the vision and key projects for the Council.


The Council received the report of the Director of Regeneration and Planning and referral from the meeting of Cabinet held on 5 February 2020, in respect of the adoption of the Corporate Plan 2020-24.


Councillor Nicholson (Leader of the Council) moved and Councillor Clay seconded the recommendation to adopt the Corporate Plan, and thanked the public and all organisations who had contributed to the document.  Members from across the Council spoke to the contents of the plan, which set out the administration’s priorities. 


Among the points made in the discussion it was suggested that the reference to ‘loos’ in the document was replaced by ‘toilets’ and that ‘customers’ should instead be called ‘residents’.  Councillor Nicholson indicated that she was content to incorporate the change in relation to use of the word ‘toilets’ in her recommendation, and to have a wider conversation on the best terminology for future documents in terms of customers, residents and service users, all of which are widely used.


The recommendations were put to the vote and declared carried.


RESOLVED: To adopt the new Corporate Plan 2020-24 attached at Appendix 2 to the Council Report, subject to the amendment to use the word ‘toilets’ as agreed above.
