Corporate Plan

Blaby District is made up of thriving and vibrant communities where people are happy to live, work and visit.

For any organisation to be effective, whether, in the public or private sector, it must have focus and direction. It needs to be clear on its purpose, concentrate on what matters, and plan to achieve these.

The Blaby Plan 2018-21 sets out our ambitions and how we will deliver our priorities, with partners, to our community. It is the result of listening to customers, staff and stakeholders, and collecting and analysing information.

We believe that our purpose is to do our bit to improve the well being and quality of life of local people. We are ambitious for our area and want to deliver the very best outcomes. However, we have to set this against a background of ongoing challenges in funding and resources. We could just focus on what we are required to do legally but our residents tell us that there are many other issues important to them. We will work and support the district in being a great place to live, work and visit.

The Blaby Plan is not just a list of things that we want to achieve for the district. It sets out our priorities, our resources and how we support staff to deliver in ever-changing times. We will be working alongside partners to deliver clear outcomes and make a real difference for everyone.

The key documents that make up the Blaby Plan 2018-21 are:

  • The Corporate Plan
  • Medium Term Financial Strategy
  • People Strategy

These documents form our vision and plan for the next three years, how we will manage our money, and our staff to deliver these.

Our priorities for the district

  • Live - Strong, healthy, safe, sustainable communities where the most vulnerable are supported
  • Work - A thriving, prosperous, innovative local economy with a skilled and healthy workforce contributing to the local community
  • Visit - A strong leisure and tourism sector and well maintained and accessible attractions available in the local area encourage visitors to the district

The amount of money we have to provide services is limited by the funding we receive and our ability to secure income and charge for certain services.

Our money from central government is expected to reduce in the coming years. This will leave us with a gap of between £582,000 and £929,000 per year over the next five years. We are working hard to continue to identify savings and generate income to deliver services in a structured way and minimise disruption to customers.

Blaby District Council is a great place to work

People are our most valuable

The key ambitions of the people strategy are grouped under

A great place to work and:

  • Be developed
  • Be healthy
  • Be valued

People Strategy

Blaby District Council is a great place to work and the only way we can continue to deliver high-quality services to our residents is by making sure that our people have the right skills and support to succeed.

We have high expectations and we need talented, engaged, happy, skilled and diverse people to meet these and continue to contribute to our success.

The People Strategy 2018-21 sets out our direction for the next three years, the vision for our workforce and the behaviours that we need to embed into our work. It supports the Council’s strategic priorities and values as set out in The Blaby Plan 2018-2021 and the key objectives are grouped under three broad themes:

  • Being developed
  • Being healthy
  • Being valued

It is vitally important that this is not just a strategic document but delivers what is needed. A detailed action plan will be in place to monitor progress on the necessary tasks and to ensure its success. This will remain a ‘living’ document so progress can be tracked and updated. It will be refreshed every year to ensure that Blaby District Council remains a great place to work.
