Council performance

We're committed to providing high quality services which are value for money. To achieve this it's important that we actively manage our performance.

Council priorities

The Forest of Dean District Council Plan 2024-2028 sets out our vision for the District. It outlines the areas in which the Council, along with our partners, will work to improve the quality of life for our residents, as well as addressing the climate emergency.

The three priorities for the Forest of Dean District Council from 2024 to 2028 are: 

  1. Thriving communities: We want to support local communities and help them grow so that we can work together to respond to the challenges and opportunities posed by the climate and nature emergencies.
  2. Decarbonisation and Nature Recovery: Protect and enhance the natural environment and be on target to be carbon neutral by 2030.
  3. Sustainable Economy: To improve the Forest of Dean economy while encouraging businesses to be environmentally sustainable and protecting the wellbeing of residents.

These priorities are of equal importance. Each priority contains five strategies that provide more detail on how we will achieve them. We believe they will shape the Forest of Dean and offer residents and businesses the opportunities to flourish and grow, whilst protecting the beauty and heritage of the district’s natural environment. Further details for these strategies can be found in the document above.
