Introduction - Leader
This County Plan highlights the ambitions for 2022-27 and set out the key delivery activities planned for 2022-23 financial year that will help realise our longer-term ambitions.
This plan has been developed out of commitments and previous key drivers including the Well-being of Future Generations Act to improve the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Torfaen by seeking to ensure ‘that the needs of the present are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.
The Covid pandemic and the current cost of living crisis has provided a powerful reminder of the importance of frontline services and the council’s central role in supporting communities. It also confirmed the power of working together to address key issues and in making improvements to people’s lives.
We are realistic about the scale of the challenge - the loss of government funding, rising costs and changing demands means we face tough choices about where to focus resources. Our day-to-day services are important in making it possible for residents to get on with their everyday lives, for businesses to thrive, and provide support to people at different stages of their lives.
Our delivery plan focuses on commitments beyond our day-to-day services to show how the council will progress its priorities in meeting our vision to…
Improve the sustainability, connectivity and well-being of our county by strengthening our communities, by creating a thriving local economy and by protecting and enhancing our environment.
