Council Strategy 2017-2020

Formerly known as the Community Strategy, the Council Strategy reflects the Council's key ambitions for the coming three years and these are focussed on five areas that are:

  • Delivering an entrepreneurial approach to efficient public services
  • Winchester District will be a premier business location
  • Delivering quality housing options
  • Improve the health and happiness of our community
  • Improving the quality of the District's environment

The refreshed Strategy will enable the Council to reshape its activities and resources to align with the new outcomes contained within it.  The Strategy then drives the allocation of the Council's resources, as well as seeking new sources of finance over the period until 2020.

Cabinet approved on the 7 December 2016 the draft Council Strategy for consultation with stakeholders. Feedback from the consultation can be viewed on the Council's Citizenspace pages from the link below.

The second document sets out 'how' the Council will deliver its ambitions and some of the intents behind how the organisation as a whole will work in the future.

The Strategy was adopted by Full Council at its meeting on 23 February.
