Our vision for Kirklees is to be a district that combines a strong, sustainable economy with a great quality of life - leading to thriving communities, growing businesses, high prosperity and low inequality where people enjoy better health throughout their lives.
Working with people, partners and place
Our Council Plan describes the ambitions we have for Kirklees and sets out how we work with people, partners, and in places so we can achieve our ambitions.
We use the phrase 'We're Kirklees' to capture our pride in Kirklees and our ambition for the future; we're ambitious for the place and our people and we want to celebrate all that makes Kirklees special.
Just like for individuals, our organisation's values guide the way we think and act. In our response to the pandemic we have seen our values in action, under incredible pressure and in a rapidly changing environment.
Our shared outcomes
We remain committed to the shared outcomes we have already set out in previous plans. These outcomes haven't changed, even in the light of the pandemic, although the steps we will need to take to get us there might be different because of the constantly evolving national and local impacts the pandemic continues to have, and because of our focus on tackling inequalities as part of everything we do.
