This plan has been developed to take a forward-facing and ambitious approach to assist in addressing the coronavirus pandemic and realise the opportunities to get greater value from waste which exist as we enter the next decade. In 2020, we can expect significant change in the local, regional, national and indeed international political, economic and societal spheres. Given this complexity, we recognise the importance of having a clear vision and ambitious objectives for the next four years that add value to our key stakeholders – our partner councils.
In developing the Corporate Plan, we consulted our stakeholders, listened to the challenges they face and their expectations of us in terms of the services they need us to provide. We are all too aware of the difficulties facing our partners and of the need for us to work closely with them to provide efficient, effective and value-for-money services that contribute to the ambitions they have set.
We have also considered how we can develop and refine our own services to offer them to a wider audience – and this will require some fundamental changes.
