What is the Council Plan?

Dudley Council is constantly striving to improve the way that we deliver our services to meet the needs of local people, and to ensure we can measure and demonstrate our achievements. The Council Plan 2024-2025 sets out Dudley's strategic direction for the year.

As part of our response to external reviews and audits, the council is focussing on a plan that is Fit for the Future. The council's one-year plan has been developed and will reflect our focus on becoming a financially sustainable organisation.

The plan has five key priority areas, three inward facing and two outward facing:

  • Financial sustainability, efficiency and providing best value
  • Governance and control
  • Leadership and culture
  • Delivering for our customers, residents and communities
  • Supporting businesses and the local economy

These priorities are supported by additional narrative on the outcomes that the council aims to achieve including the need to improve its governance, decision making, leadership and financial resilience whilst maintaining the delivery of core services to our residents and communities.
