Corporate Strategy 2021

Closed 26 Sep 2021

Opened 13 Aug 2021


The Corporate Strategy describes our vision for the council, the services we deliver, and what we want to achieve with our partners in Bristol and beyond. The strategy sets out our main priorities for the coming five years, and it informs everything the council does and how we plan for the future.

The Corporate Strategy is the foundation upon which all other council plans and strategies are built. When we make any major decision and, every year when we make annual plans for the hundreds of services we provide, the Corporate Strategy is what we refer to and try to deliver.

In this consultation we are asking for your views on our draft Corporate Strategy for 2022 – 2027. Your feedback will help us write a final version of the strategy.

You can read our at-a-glance version or the full draft Corporate Strategy online. You can also view reference copies of the Corporate Strategy in libraries.

Please tell us what you think by 26 September 2021.

If you would like this consultation as a paper copy or in another language, braille, audio, large print, easy English, BSL video or CD rom or plain text, please contact us by emailing or calling 0117 922 2848.

Paper copies of the consultation are also available in libraries.

What happens next?

This consultation closes on 26 September 2021.

After this we will consider every response, along with the results of an Equalities Impact Assessment, and we will consider making changes to the proposed Corporate Strategy based on the feedback. We will then prepare a report of the responses to the consultation and a final version of the strategy which will be presented for comment to several public meetings:

  • Overview and Scrutiny Management Boarddate to be confirmed in September or October 2021. This meeting of councillors will see a final draft of the Strategy and they will be able to ask questions and provide their views on the strategy formally to Cabinet and Full Council.
  • Cabinet – 02 November 2021. The Mayor and Cabinet will consider the final draft, Scrutiny comments, a report on this consultation and the Equalities Impact Assessment and will decide whether to recommend the Corporate Strategy to Full Council.
  • Full Council – 07 December 2021. This meeting of the Mayor and all 70 Bristol councillors will decide whether to approve the Corporate Strategy and will take in to consideration the report on consultation feedback in making their decision.
