Babergh and Mid Suffolk are proud to be developing our first Communities Strategy which will respond to the big changes we're experiencing in local government and the inevitable challenges we face in the future. It will set out our vision for the type of future we want to develop with communities and stakeholders, and provide the foundations of what's needed to achieve it.
We want to continue to deliver high quality services that are valued by our communities, but we must be realistic that this means working in different ways.
The focus of this strategy is to create the right conditions for communities to work, as well as bring volunteers, community leaders and publicly funded services together to plan and provide support for each other in the most sustainable way. This will ensure our communities are resilient and connected places for people to live and work.
Our draft Communities Strategy consultation has now closed. The strategy is expected to be adopted by both councils in March 2019 and will then be made available on this page.
