Down District Council Corporate Plan 2011 - 2015
“I have pleasure in presenting you with the Down District Council Corporate Plan for the period 2011 to 2015.”
Down District Council is facing a very challenging time over the next four years as we experience a significant reduction in the revenue we generate and funding we receive due to the continued difficulties being experienced by the economy. Despite the very challenging financial situation we are operating within, we remain an ambitious Council and there is much to do to continue the regeneration of our towns and villages and to improve the quality of life and life chances for local people.
Our most important task therefore is to sustain delivery of our key priorities in a significantly tighter financial environment. We must find ways to continue to deliver on our priorities within the resources we have available. We need to continue to do things more effectively, more efficiently and work in partnership with others to ensure we achieve the successful delivery of planned improvements within Down district. We will continue to work closely with key partners along with representatives from the private, voluntary and community sectors to achieve our long-term shared priorities for the district.
The quality of service to our customers continues to be an important area of focus. Many of the objectives and strategies contained in the plan will help to provide
quality and targeted services to the customer. This plan will help Down District Council to avail of the opportunities presented and to meet the challenges ahead to enhance the lives of the people of Down district.
