Boston Borough Council’s wide-ranging aims for the next four years – contained in a document known as the Corporate Strategy 2020 to 2024 – are now available for all to read.
It sets out the Council’s direction of travel over the coming years; identifying where the council will focus its efforts and resources to improve the borough for our community. Taking into account the council’s priorities and how, working with partners, it aims to achieve them.
The new document reflects the principles of the council’s ambitions – continuing to deliver high quality services that our community needs in their everyday lives, whilst at the same time looking to the future with a view to addressing some of the key challenges the area faces.
Performance will be matched against targets and measured and monitored every step of the way in order that adjustments can be made to keep the council on course.
The four overarching priorities are to ensure Boston is a place where people want to live, work and visit; grow Boston’s economy to ensure it remains a thriving town; reduce the Council’s carbon footprint and become net zero carbon in advance of the timetable declared by UK Parliament and deliver high quality services and maximise use of technology to support residents.
Cllr Paul Skinner, Leader of the Council said: “Our community have made it clear to us what their priorities are and this has helped us form the basis for our priorities for the next four years and how these will be measured and achieved. I urge everyone to take a look at what our strategy holds. We will do our upmost in matching our achievements to our strategy and I am confident that we will deliver this.
“In addition, we now have submitted for the opportunity to secure up to £25m of Government funding for regeneration in our Borough and we have entered into a strategic alliance with East Lindsey District Council that will enable us to save £5m over the next ten years, whilst also improving services to those we represent.”
