How we measure our performance against key priorities.

Corporate Strategy 2017/18 to 2021/22

The consultation on the  Corporate Strategy 2017/18-2021/22 has closed. The strategy sets out the Mayor's vision, what we plan to achieve in the next five years, including proposals for our revenue and capital budgets.

Corporate Plan 2014-17

The Corporate Plan 2014-2017 (pdf, 597k) (opens new window) sets out how we aim to achieve the vision for Bristol. Together with our Medium Term Financial Strategy (pdf, 840k) (opens new window) .

The  vision for Bristol on which the Corporate Plan 2014-17 is built has six key priorities that we're working towards:

  • Healthy and Caring Bristol
  • Keeping Bristol Working and Learning
  • Keep Bristol Moving
  • Building Successful Places
  • Global Green Capital
  • Vibrant Bristol City Council

To measure how well we're performing against these priorities and to drive improvement we:

  • measure how well each of our services are doing
  • compare our performance over time and against similar organisations
  • look for ways to improve the services we provide
