Draft 5 Year Plan
The 5 Year Plan (our strategic statement) is our flagship strategy. It unites the council with clear outcomes and objectives.
We asked for your views to help make Kent the best place to live, work, play, learn and invest in.
Read the video transcript.
Over the past 7 months we have been listening to:
- Kent residents
- young people
- voluntary and community sector organisations
- our staff
- our partners across public services.
We have heard about what is important to quality of life in Kent and what people’s priorities are.
Based on what we have heard, we have developed a draft plan. The plan shapes what we will do, what we will prioritise spending money on and how we will work together with our partners over the next 5 years.
The plan sets out 7 draft outcomes for Kent:
Each outcome has a set of more specific objectives that we will work with partners to deliver. We will also stand up for Kent’s interests with government.
Now we are keen to hear your thoughts about it so we can make changes before publishing the final version.
The consultation ran from the 6 January to the 17 February 2020.
We sought your views on:
- how well the 7 draft outcomes reflect what is important to your quality of life
- how well the draft objectives will help us to deliver each of these outcomes.
The consultation material is available to view on our consultation directory.
We are now bringing together a ‘You Said, We Did’ report which will include an analysis of the engagement and consultation feedback and KCC’s response to this. This will be published on the consultation website. This report will be presented to our Corporate Management Team, our Cabinet and County Council in February and March 2020 as part of the approval process.
We will also be bringing together a shorter summary document of the final 5 year plan.
