Council Plan 2008 - 2013 & 2009 Update


A Vision for Birmingham

''It's 2026...Birmingham is a globally competitive city contributing fully to the thriving, prosperous and sustainable city region. Birmingham people have high aspirations, and the skills and opportunities they need to succeed. Birmingham is a safe, clean and friendly city that is tackling climate change and protecting the local environment. People are healthy and economically successful, and enjoy living together. The city is truly 'a global city with a local heart.''

This is the vision that Birmingham City Council has signed up to with its community and private and public sector partners - a vision of Birmingham in 18 years time.

The Council Plan 2008-2013 sets out what the Council needs to do in the next five years to help make this vision a reality in the next two decades. We have listened to what residents have told us is important and will be working with our partners so that they can:

  • Succeed Economically-benefiting from education, training jobs and investment
  • Stay Safe in a Clean, Green City-living in clean, green and safe communities
  • Be Healthy-enjoy 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

This is an ambitious vision for the people of Birmingham and we will ensure that we are equipped to achieve this by:

  • transforming the way we manage our business and work with partners
  • radically improving our approach to customer service
  • achieving excellence in our 10 constituencies
  • putting sustainability at the heart of everything we do
  • taking a preventative and targeted approach.

Council Plan Measures 2008 - 2013

In previous years, targets for the future years were published in the annual Performance Plan. Due to legislative changes, we are no longer required to produce an annual Performance Plan. Please see the attachments below for our latest milestones, measures and targets to achieve excellence. These are used to support the Council's performance improvement agenda and form the basis of corporate performance monitoring during the year.

A MS Excel version is also attached - this can be filtered or sorted by a number of different selection criterias.
