The planning framework ensures we use resources effectively and take into account how we are performing and the views and priorities of service users, residents and the wider priorities of national Government when developing our services.
The East Riding community plan 2016-2021 is a plan for the whole of the East Riding shared by all those working together to improve the quality of life in the area and driving what is done in each of our organisations - this has been renewed this year.
The local plan is the name for the collection of documents that together provide the framework for managing development and addressing the key planning issues within an area. The local plan reflects the aspirations of local communities, guides investment decisions, as well as the quality and appearance of towns and villages, coastline and countryside and, is used to determine planning applications.
Linked closely to the business plan are more detailed strategies and plans often focused on specific groups of people or functions to drive the delivery of the council’s priorities. Increasingly, many of these strategies are jointly developed and monitored with partners, for example, the Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.
Service plans are a tool to enable services to turn plans into action, monitor performance and effectively manage their business. The service plans are updated annually in the spring.
