Ambitious blueprint for county approved
29 November 2021
An ambitious blueprint to make our great county even better has been unveiled by the County Council.
Better Together for Norfolk charts the county council’s priorities over the next five years, to guide how it will work with partners to boost the economy, protect the environment, help people live healthy and fulfilling lives and support communities.
County Council leader Councillor Andrew Proctor said: “Better Together, for Norfolk is our ambitious five-year strategy, which sets out our priorities for the county.
“I am keen to work with you and other key partners to capitalise on this pivotal point in time – making the most of opportunities for recovery, renewal and resilience and the Government’s Levelling Up and environmental agendas.
“We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to seize the prospects for long-term change now, so that we can grow our economy to build a stronger, greener, fairer, more inclusive and more sustainable future for Norfolk.”
The strategy will support the council’s efforts to engage with the Government’s levelling up agenda, by attracting more powers and funding to the county.
The priorities are:
- A vibrant and sustainable economy
- Better opportunities for children and young people
- Healthy, fulfilling and independent lives
- Strong, engaged and inclusive communities
- A greener, more resilient future
Now that the strategy has been agreed by County Councillors, a delivery plan will be developed, with detailed schemes to put the strategy into action.
