The Vale of Glamorgan Council has set out its "4-year Vision"

The Vale of Glamorgan Council has set out its “4-year Vision” to the year 2020

The Vale of Glamorgan Council – likely to be merged out of existence under the new Labour administration in the Welsh Assembly – has set out how it will achieve what it calls its “vision” for the next four years.

The authority’s new Corporate Plan is designed to foster strong communities with a bright future and details the work it will do between now and 2020 to “make this vision a reality for residents” .

The council has also reminded council-tax-payers – who’ve had to dig ever deeper into their pockets to meet the council’s successive inflation-busting imposts  – of its  so-called “core values”. It turns out they are “Ambitious, Open, Together, and Proud.”

Cllr Neil Moore, Leader of the Labour-run council says his administration will “sustain priority services and continue to work with partners, listen to what our citizens tell us about the services they value, and use this to help shape the way in which we work.

The council has set out a list of eight –  what it calls – “wellbeing objectives“. These are:-

  • reducing poverty and social exclusion,
  • providing decent homes and safe communities,
  • promoting regeneration,
  • economic growth and employment,
  • promoting sustainable development
  • protecting our environment,
  • raising overall standards of achievement,
  • valuing culture and diversity,
  • encouraging and promoting active and healthy lifestyles,
  • safeguarding those who are vulnerable and promoting independent living.

    “Ambitious, Open, Together, and Proud.” Ha- sounds like a flashers charter. They forgot to add to the list of “wellbeing” objectives – wrecking Penarth. Surely Cardiff will be better ! ?

      I hope so…but it might well be “frying pan” and “fire”. What is a disgrace is the endless above inflation increases in council tax, year after year, but that’s also down to our Labour led Welsh Assembly who do nothing about it, presumably as many of their core voters get rebates anyway!

  2. Anne Greagsby says:

    Open – listening ….is this the council who replace lights, chop down trees, change benches, refuse to put flowers on the roundabout with out consulting or listening to citizens?! Cardiff council is even worse, the labour group is split and infighting like ferrets in a sack. The Town Council must get some backbone and shout out for Penarth.

  3. Big Davey says:

    Ahhh bless ’em. They really don’t know when is it all over for them do they.

    You could add, … ‘for the councillors’ to each of their stated objectives and that would be about right.

    Don’t cry for them though, I am sure they will be looked after ‘handsomely’ beyond their value in any re-organisation.
