What are plans, policies and strategies?

Strategies focus on the medium to long-term (typically 3-20 years) priorities of the council, or council and its partners.

Strategies (or plans) are forward-looking, define outcomes, take a long-term view and outward look. They take into consideration local, regional, national and global factors.

Policies clarify and communicate the position taken by the council on a particular issue, ensuring compliance with legislation, a focus on service development, improved service delivery and efficiency and safeguard the council, employees and service users.
