Our plan for a healthy, prosperous and greener Nottinghamshire
The Nottinghamshire Plan sets out our commitments over the next four years that show how we will play our part in working towards the healthy, prosperous and greener future that all our communities deserve.Introduction from Councillor Ben Bradley
Our vision and ambitions for Nottinghamshire
We’re working towards a healthy, prosperous and greener future for everyone. We’ve split our vision into nine ambitions, which describe what we want for all our communities.Our vision and ambitions
Our approach is just as important as the vision itself because it sets out how we plan to reach our goals. So, in all our work over the next four years, we plan to:
Listen to our communities
We think you, the people of Nottinghamshire, should have a say in how we do things. We’ll work alongside you, keep you up to date, listen to your concerns, and — where we can — involve you in any important decisions.
We take our social care responsibilities really seriously, and will always be there when we’re needed most. But many people want to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible. So, we’ll invest in services that empower and support independence, giving help to those who need it without intruding on their daily lives.
We want to create a better future for all our residents which means working on reducing inequalities in health and all the things which influence it.
While we’ll need to invest in some areas to reach our goals, we must protect our essential services too. So, we’ll spend wisely, work creatively, and find innovative ways to make money and resources go further.
Make decisions based on evidence
Data and evidence help us to understand the strengths and needs in our communities and make sound decisions. We’ll use and analyse data as we go to help us work more efficiently, reach more people, reduce inequalities, and make our services better.
This plan depends on the joint strength of our people, organisations, and businesses. We’ll look for new and better ways for us all to work together, so that we can all contribute to a shared vision for Nottinghamshire.
Lead with optimism
We’ll focus on using our strengths, opportunities and creativity when finding solutions to difficult issues.
