Have your say on the new 4-year council strategy
The council is inviting the community to come forward and have their say on the council's draft vision and priorities for the next 4 years which outline its ongoing commitment to putting residents first.
Hillingdon Council's Cabinet approved the authority's draft Council Strategy 2022 to 2026 for consultation at its meeting on Thursday 7 July 2022.
The council's vision
The council's vision remains putting residents first, and the ambition statement for residents is that Hillingdon is a safe, inclusive, more digital borough with a strong economy.
For the council itself the ambition is that it strives to be an efficient, well-run, digitally- enabled authority and works with partners to deliver services to improve the lives of its residents.
The 5 commitments to residents included in the draft strategy are:
- Safe and Strong Communities
Hillingdon is a safe place with resilient, strong communities with access to good quality, affordable housing.
- Thriving, Healthy Households
Children, young people, their families and vulnerable adults and older people live healthy, active and independent lives.
- A Green and Sustainable Borough
Hillingdon will be a sustainable, carbon-neutral borough, protecting Hillingdon's heritage, built environment and valued green spaces. Residents live in pleasant neighbourhoods with access to sustainable waste management and transport.
- A Thriving Economy
We are actively working with local businesses and partners to create a borough where businesses grow within a strong economy and local people can improve their skills and enjoy good quality jobs.
- A Digital-Enabled, Modern, Well-Run Council
We are a well-run, sustainable council with sound financial management, achieving positive outcomes for residents.
