Have your say on Council’s priorities

Date Published: 09 November 2018

What do you think of the services provided by North Kesteven District Council and where it focusses its efforts?

The authority is currently refreshing its corporate plan – the NK Plan – which sets out the vision and priorities for the Council over the next three years – ensuring NKDC and its partners can deliver services and respond to any challenges.

The five priorities are based around homes, communities, the economy, environment and Council – making sure people have access to good quality housing, in places they feel safe to live in, where there are employment opportunities and places to enjoy visiting.

Last year more than 3,300 residents responded to the survey and the aim this year is to engage with traditionally underrepresented age groups, such as young people.

Feedback from all age groups is appreciated as it means the NK Plan can be tailored to support everyone living in North Kesteven.

The NK Plan is underpinned by a financial strategy which, rather than covering the next three years, looks further over the next decade.

It sets out the Council’s clear commitment to provide quality services representing value for money for a District of flourishing communities.

It builds on the achievements of the past, and sets out a clear direction for the future, with an ambitious and innovative programme of activity designed to ensure that the authority maintains its already robust financial position and proactively meets the challenges it faces.

Some of the projects in the £200 million investment programme currently under way are complete, some are under way and some are planned for the future.

All of the investments are designed to support the priority areas the Council is committed to delivering.

These will help to create jobs, provide leisure opportunities, improve the local environment and provide vital infrastructure as the District grows.

Councillor Richard Wright, Leader of NKDC, said: “Your feedback helps to shape our services, where we focus our efforts and what you feel is needed in the District.

“It’s important you have your say as what we do, where we invest and the services we deliver affect your every day lives.

“Please take a few minutes to fill in the survey.”
