The Corporate Plan sets out the way in which the council intends to develop and improve its services between 2016 and 2019.

The corporate plan, in conjunction with other plans and partners, plays an important role in ensuring that the council's strategic objectives are achieved for the people and the city of Wolverhampton.

The corporate plan does not cover everything that the council does, but it focuses on a combination of those issues that matter most to local people, the national priorities set by Central Government and the unique challenges arising from the city's changing social, economic and environmental contexts.

How do we use it?

The plan is a key component of our corporate planning and performance management. It links the strategic priorities of the council directly to the activities of each individual employee. It includes indicators for improving overall council performance, services and the way the council works. It will also enable us to measure our progress and alert us to the remedial actions needed to bring our performance back on track.
