Safer, Stronger, Ambitious and Resilient.
These four words form the basis of the Council’s medium term strategy. Our 15 year vision.
“Today’s difficulties must not restrict our vision for the future. I am acutely aware of the desperate financial position councils face, as the government-imposed funding regime forces us to make tough, even heart-breaking, decisions. This certainly isn’t what I wanted to be doing for Derby. We have to protect our most vulnerable people, a point echoed in the responses to the council’s Big Conversation budget consultation. Yet the cost of that care is large and rising.
I will continue to fight vigorously for a fairer deal for Derby. The government must understand the impact the loss of services is having on people. But I don’t want this to be the only story for Derby.”
Councillor Ranjit Banwait, Leader of Derby City Council
