Priorities for our borough

The council has developed four priorities to focus delivery:

One Council delivering for local people

This underpins everything we do. We will be a council that listens to our local residents and communities and is responsive to their needs. We will work with them to deliver first-class, efficient services while keeping Council Tax low.

A successful and sustainable growing borough

We will build a strong and sustainable economy to ensure opportunities and support are available to everyone to improve their lives.

Healthy, active, and safe communities

We will ensure everyone enjoys a safe environment and access to a wide-range of facilities and activities to support and improve their health and quality of life.

Town centres for all

We will transform Newcastle and Kidsgrove town centres to ensure their future as places everyone can live, work, shop, study and spend their leisure time.
