The Corporate Plan lasts for 4 years and sets the strategic direction for the council. 

That means it helps us to identify our priorities and actions, and the challenges we need to address.   

To make sure we stay on track, we will set key performance Indicators for each of the priorities in the Corporate Plan (KPIs). 

These are sets of measures to assess progress and are regularly reported to Cabinet and published annually.  

The current Corporate Plan concludes in March 2024 and this consultation draft, with your feedback, will help us prepare for the next four years.  

The draft plan is informed by councillors, staff, and residents. 

It is important that we hear from you.

Please take the time to read the draft and let us know: 

  • do we have the right vision? 
  • are we focused on the right priorities? 
  • are there areas where you/your organisation would want to focus on working together? 
  • is there anything else you would like to tell us about our draft Corporate Plan? 

Feedback form

We have provided an online form for your comments (see link below). The deadline for responses is midnight, 26 January 2024. 

What happens next

We will consider the feedback we are given throughout this consultation period and then issue a revised version to our councillors and leadership team, before submitting it to our Overview and Scrutiny Panel. 

An updated version will then be presented to our Cabinet on 3 April 2024.  

From April 2024, the finalised Corporate Plan will be published on the New Forest District Council website.
