Find out about the Council's Corporate Strategy

The Corporate Strategy (2018-23) (pdf, 3.7MB) (opens new window) sets out our contribution to the city and is our main strategic document. 

It informs everything the council does and sets out our key priorities for 2018 to 2023. 

Our Business Plan 2018/19 (pdf, 566k) (opens new window) describes what we’re doing to deliver on the vision, principles and commitments made in the Corporate Strategy.

The Business Plan outlines the most important actions we need to take during this financial year, along with more detail on how we’ll measure our progress.

The Corporate Strategy outlines a vision of building a city of hope and aspiration where everyone can share in the city’s success. 

As Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees says:

“If we work together to make a success of this, more people will enjoy healthier, happier lives with less need for intensive council intervention. Everyone will be included in this city’s success and will have a home where they can achieve their aspirations, regardless of their background or where they grew up.” 

The Corporate Strategy is arranged around four main themes:

Empowering and caring: Working with partners to empower communities and individuals, increase independence, support those who need it and give children the best possible start in life.

Fair and inclusive: Improving economic and social equality, pursuing economic growth which includes everyone and making sure people have access to good quality learning, decent jobs and homes they can afford.

Well-connected: Taking bold and innovative steps to make Bristol a joined up city, linking up people with jobs and with each other.

Wellbeing: Creating healthier and more resilient communities where life expectancy is not determined by wealth or background.

Under each of these themes are four Key Commitments , the highest priority actions we are taking.

The Corporate Strategy also explains the principles which inform everything we do, as well as the activities we are obliged to do by law.
