Boston Borough Council is seeking the views of the community to shape its next Corporate Strategy – the document that sets out the Council’s aims and ambitions for the borough. The Strategy, once adopted, will identify where the Council will focus its efforts and resources to improve the Borough over the coming years.
The draft Strategy has been produced at a time when the Council and community are beginning the long process of recovery from Covid-19. However, we now have an opportunity to secure up to £25 m of Government funding for regeneration in our Borough. In addition, we have entered into a strategic alliance with East Lindsey District Council that will enable us to save £5m over the next ten years, whilst also improving services to those we represent.
Our draft Strategy focuses on four priorities:
2 Future prosperity and growth
3 Environmental awareness and accountability
4 Delivering high quality services and maximising the use of technology to support residents.
Cllr Paul Skinner, Leader of Boston Borough Council, said: “A key issue facing our residents and businesses is unquestionably around facilitating economic growth, whilst protecting the essential characteristics that make our borough our home and delivering high quality services and maximising the use of technology to support our residents.
“These priorities will help us to focus on providing facilities and growth that give us a strong and prosperous future.
“We would be grateful if our residents would take time to read this draft strategy and respond to the consultation, and by letting us know whether they feel there are any other priority areas we should be focusing our attention on.”
The Council would also like your view on the draft strategy. Please fill out our survey at https://www.mybostonuk.com/consultation/ closing date is Wednesday 30 September 2020.
