Corporate plan

Our corporate plan shows you what we will prioritise within the Scottish Borders over the five year period 2012/13 to 2017/18.

Our vision

We seek the best quality of life for all the people in the Scottish Borders, prosperity for our businesses and good health and resilience for all our communities.

The priorities driving our business are:

  • Priority 1: Encouraging sustainable economic growth - How are we doing?

On 7th October 2015, Councillors approved a revised Corporate Plan, sticking with the same vision and eight priorities but updating the context to reflect internal and external changes. Appended to the Corporate Plan are a review of progress against the eight corporate priorities and an updated Performance Management Framework.

The business plans of our services and the work we do with partners will help up address these priorities. Find out about our performance against these priorities.

When working towards these priorities, staff will:

  • Put our customers and staff at the heart of what we do
  • Be fair, equal and open
  • Continually improve our services
  • Work with partners and stakeholders
  • Deliver value for money in the use of our resources
