Lib Dems unveil updated Council strategy
The Lib Dem Executive on Woking Borough Council have created a new strategic plan which sets out the newly elected administration's key priorities for the year ahead.
The 'Woking for all' supplementary and amended priorities strategy sets out 23 key policy priorities for 2022/23 which complements the Woking for all 2022/27 strategy, adopted earlier this year.
Lib Dem Leader of Woking Borough Council, Councillor Ann-Marie Barker, said:
"As an ambitious Council, the Woking for all strategy is pivotal for navigating the critical times ahead and setting a new direction under my administration."
"It is no surprise that my administration has prioritised financial responsibility, a masterplan for Woking Town Centre, and achieving carbon neutral status as our key priorities. Underpinning these priorities is my commitment to conduct Council business with openness and transparency."
"The strategy will support our focus on delivering responsible change, targeted at the areas of highest priority, and is decisive so that our actions make a difference. It will embed affordable, responsible and sustainable principles into how the Council conducts its business going forward."
"My administration is very conscious of the sharply rising cost of living and its impacts on local people. I know many are worried about what the winter will bring, how they will heat their homes and put meals on the table. We will bring the work of partners together to ensure we provide the best possible support to our residents through this difficult period. We will hold a summit in September to determine actions for the challenging winter ahead."
