Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are proud and delighted to present the first ever East Suffolk Business Plan – our vision for the delivery of services to our communities across the two districts.
This is the first time we have ever produced a joint Business Plan and, as one of the most progressive local government partnerships in the country, we believe it is a natural progression following many years of innovation.
We were among the first councils to appoint a shared Chief Executive and we now boast a fully integrated, shared workforce, helping us to save over £10 million since 2010. However, in an increasingly challenging financial environment we must continue to innovate and seek ways to ensure our communities are best served and protected.
Our two councils are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone living in, working in, and visiting east Suffolk. The Business Plan therefore encapsulates how we will seek to achieve this.
