Council strategies and plans

Council Plan 2020-24 and Delivery Plan 2020-22

On 14 July 2020, Watford Borough Council adopted the new Council Plan 2020-24 and Delivery Plan 2020-22.

Watford Together. Our Town. Our Future

Our new Council Plan set out our aspirations for both Watford Borough Council and the town it serves.  It is forward-looking, high level and outward facing, with an emphasis on outcome focused commitments.  The plan demonstrates our role as leader of place and how we will continue to build on our strategic and operational excellence.

Our Council Plan themes are:

  • A council that serves our residents
  • A thriving, diverse and creative town
  • A healthy and happy town

The delivery of these themes is underpinned by the proposed principles of: excellence; promotion; impact; enterprise; leadership and caring.

Our Delivery Plan 2020-22 sets out how the council will focus our work to bring the Council Plan to life, making sure we deliver what we said we would over the next 18 months.  Under each theme and commitment, we set out our key priority areas of actions, which we are focused on achieving by 2022.  The Delivery Plan will be monitored and a report on progress will be reported to Cabinet quarterly, and, annually, we will prepare a report for residents, businesses and partners.
