Council Plan 2007+


The past twelve months have been a great success for Birmingham City Council and we are continuing to work hard to meet our commitments to the people of Birmingham. Our ambition is to provide high quality and cost effective services and to make Birmingham a city second to none.

In 2006, the Progressive Partnership continued to implement immense change in the city. Birmingham is now feeling the benefits - we are now, by some margin, the highest achieving of England major cities for GCSE results; crime rates in Birmingham are also the lowest of all England major cities, falling by almost a fifth in the last two years and our city centre is a natural magnet for investment and excellence of which we can all rightly be proud. But equally, our emphasis on decent, warm housing, caring and competent social services, and excellent education embraces all our citizens throughout the city. This is why we believe Birmingham to be global city with a local heart

Birmingham has an exciting future. We have clear priorities that will help us achieve our vision. In our Council Plan for 2007 - 2010 we say what we want to achieve. With strategic partners and local communities we want all Birmingham residents to:

Succeed economically benefiting from education, training, jobs and investment
Stay safe living in clean, green and safe communities
Be healthy enjoying long and healthy lives
Enjoy a high quality of life benefiting from good housing and renowned cultural and leisure opportunities
Make a contribution valuing one another and playing an active part in the community.

We also want you to be involved in telling the council what you think we should be doing and how you can contribute to making the city better. Please send your comments to: Councilplan@birmingham.gov.uk
