The corporate plan describes the council's vision for Swansea, our 6 key council priorities (well-being objectives and improvement objectives) and our organisation values and principles that will underpin the delivery of our priorities and overall strategy.
Our priorities for 2021-22 that are set out within our corporate plan are:
- Safeguarding people from harm - so that our citizens are free from harm and exploitation
- Improving education and skills - so that every child and young person in Swansea gains the skills and qualifications they need to succeed in life
- Transforming our economy and infrastructure - so that Swansea has a thriving mixed-use City Centre and a local economy that will support the prosperity of our citizens
- Tackling poverty - so that every person in Swansea can achieve his or her potential
- Maintaining and enhancing Swansea's natural resources and biodiversity - so that we maintain and enhance biodiversity, reduce our carbon footprint, improve our knowledge and understanding of our natural environment and benefit health and well-being
- Transformation and future council development - so that we and the services that we provide are sustainable and fit for the future.
The council is rolling forward its five year Corporate Plan into 2021/22. Essential and necessary updates have been made, although a fuller review and refresh of the plan was not possible because of the disruption caused by the pandemic.
This discharges our duties under the Well-Being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 and Local Government Measure (Wales) 2009 to set well-being objectives and improvement objectives.
Our priorities show the council's contribution to Wales' 7 national goals described within the Well-Being of Future Generations Act (the 'Act') and describes how we will maximise this contribution to the national goals and to the social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being of Swansea by working in line with the sustainability principles set out within the Act.
