Council Business Plan 2016-20

Our vision and priorities

Our business plan sets out what we need to do as a Council over the next four years. It also puts in place a clear set of actions to show how we are going to do it. The plan includes commitments and pledges set out by the Council Leader and the Capital Coalition as well as the actions agreed by the Council with its Community Planning partners through the Edinburgh Partnership.

The plan sets out our vision for the future Council and our role in the city into a plan which will deliver positive outcomes for our customers and achieve a balanced budget. It also forms part of a single planning and performance framework. This framework joins the vision of the Council and its partners to the operational plans.

To deliver this vision, Council services focus their work around three overlapping strategic themes. These themes define the priorities for Council services and set out our commitment to

  • improve quality of life
  • ensure economic vitality
  • build excellent places.

Across all these themes, we are committed to providing best value for the people of Edinburgh and to deliver lean and agile Council services.
