Strategic Plan 2012 - 2017

The Strategic Plan is our most important document, setting out the council’s ambitions for the future.

This plan has been written following widespread public consultation, and sets out the council’s priorities and projects for the next five years.

Sitting alongside the Strategic Plan is the delivery plan. This has been published in two phases -an initial two year Delivery Plan from 2012-14, which detailed some 98 different projects and investments totalling £4 million. This has been replaced with a subsequent delivery plan covering the period 2014 - 17, itself containing almost 70 schemes representing investment (from a variety of internal an external sources) of almost £47million.

Whilst we intend to make significant progress against these documents, the current financial challenges facing the council mean that in the early years of this strategy our focus will be on the following three core areas:

  • Growing the local economy - to do what the council can to bring employment to the city and help people , particularly in deprived areas, gain employment in a very competitive labour market and hence help lift them out of a cycle of poverty and its associated negative impacts on health and well being
  • Protect the poorest people in Lincoln - from the hardship effects of the current recession
  • Increase the supply of affordable housing - to meet increasing demand

Corporate Governance Framework

The City of Lincoln Council’s Framework for Corporate Governance is made up of the systems and processes, culture and values by which the authority is directed and how it relates to the community it serves.

Good corporate governance requires the councils to be open, transparent, effective, inclusive of all sectors of the community, accountable to the public it serves and to demonstrate integrity.

This framework is a public statement of the ways in which the council will achieve good corporate governance.

Scrutiny Annual Report

The City of Lincoln Council operates an Executive system, comprising the Leader and other portfolio holders. Much of the operational decision-making within the Council takes place within the Executive.

To improve the quality of the decisions made by the Council, a scrutiny structure was put in place under the local government modernisation agenda, which provided the opportunity for the remaining non-Executive Councillors to challenge decisions made by the Executive.

Each year a scrutiny annual report is produced summarising the work undertaken in that year. The annual report is then received by the Full Council. Copies of these annual reports can be downloaded from the Council’s committee management system by clicking here and navigating to the relevant agenda.
