‘Making Kingston Better Together’ is Kingston Council’s new Corporate Plan, setting out the vision, ambitions and priorities for the borough over the next four years (2019-23).

The plan focusses on three main outcomes:

  • A sustainable approach to new homes, development and infrastructure which benefits our communities, in a well maintained borough.
  • A safe borough which celebrates our diverse and vibrant communities, with local priorities shaped through participatory democracy.
  • Healthy, independent and resilient residents with effective support to those who need it most.

Against each outcome, the council has a number of priority activities it will focus on delivering, together with a range of measures to monitor performance.  These outcomes and priorities will guide the decisions the council takes and how it allocates resources.

Councillor Liz Green, Leader of Kingston Council, said: 

"We want Kingston to be a vibrant, diverse and inclusive borough, where residents are active, empowered, engaged and able to remain independent and resilient. We are determined to work with residents, businesses and local strategic partners across the public, private and voluntary sectors to achieve. 

“Our new Corporate Plan includes our priority outcomes - what we want to achieve for the borough.  We will report progress on delivering the Corporate Plan through council committees so that residents can hold us to account.”
