Corporate Plan 3

This the key strategic document that will guide how Torfaen council delivers its services over the next five years. Building on the success of its predecessor, Corporate Plan 3 will focus the council’s resources on working with communities to create an improved, more equal and sustainable future for the people of Torfaen. It sets out the three areas the council believes will create a fairer future where everyone has the opportunity to lead healthy, independent lives regardless of who they are or where they live, where young people receive the best possible standard of education and where everyone maintains cleaner and greener communities.

These priorities recognise the challenges facing Torfaen residents as a consequence of the cuts in public services expenditure and demand for services. The three priorities are:

  • A clean and green Torfaen

  • Raising educational attainment

  • Support for Torfaen’s most vulnerable residents

The plan sets out what the council will do, what the council will support and what the council will expect from residents. More information can be found here Corporate plan 3
