The council plan 2020-2024 sets out our main priorities and forms the focus of all that we aim to achieve by 2024. 

Our priorities and outcomes set out in the council plan are:

Outstanding place and environment

  • Aiming to achieve carbon neutrality by 2040
  • taking care of and enhancing our built and natural environment in our towns and villages, now and for future generations

Outstanding homes and communities

  • Enhancing the quality of life for our residents by ensuring good, quality homes in good neighbourhoods

  • Developing happy and healthy communities

Outstanding economic growth, productivity and prosperity 

  • Developing East Devon as a strong and competitive economy and a significant regional economic force

  • Ensuring that the benefits of productivity and prosperity are shared with our communities

Outstanding council and council services 

  • Operating as an organisation with the highest standards of organisational development, governance, statutory compliance and financial management

  • Focusing on the increased ability to be self-financing to support those services that matter the most to residents

The plan lists our promises to achieve those ambitions for our district. The progress of each promise is reported on quarterly and annually through our performance reporting pages

Our other plans

Sitting alongside the council plan are our communications and customer plans.

We now also have Green Space and Cultural Plans
