Draft Corporate Plan for 2019-2023


Wealden District Council would like your views on its draft Corporate Plan for 2019-2023. The Corporate Plan is the highest level strategic document produced by the Council. The Corporate Plan sets out the Council's vision for the District over the next four years with a broad outline of its priorities and how they will be achieved.

The draft Plan contains the Council's vision along with the themes of community, environment, local economy and sound business management. The questions ask for your views on the vision, aims and actions we plan to undertake with each theme.

Key Findings and changes made:

Responses were invited to an online questionnaire and overall 33 respondents completed the questionnaire. Officers attended the Wealden Disability Involvement Group to talk about the content of the draft Corporate Plan, and comments from that discussion were fed into the consultation process.

It was concluded that responses to the consultation on the Draft Corporate Plan for 2019 – 23 confirmed that the direction proposed was generally uncontroversial. The free text comments tended to be either advisory or a matter of personal opinion. In most cases where there was more than one response, views were mixed, with some for and some against. Also, it was considered that keeping the Corporate Plan concise set a clear high level strategic direction for the Council. These conclusions were subsequently accepted at the meeting of the Council’s Cabinet on 30th January 2019 whose recommendation to Full Council to adopt the draft of the Corporate Plan 2019-23 was accepted on 20th February 2019.
