A consultation is underway on the Vision for Tendring District Council (TDC).
The council is updating its Corporate Plan – a key document which lays out the high-level priorities for the authority over the next four years.
TDC’s current Corporate Plan ends in 2024, with the plan period matching the electoral cycle.
Our Vision, a draft of the new Corporate Plan, has been agreed by TDC’s Cabinet and is now available for the public to have their say.
Encompassed with a Community Leadership approach and listening to our residents and businesses commitment, it sets out five themes:
• Pride in our area and services to residents
• Raising aspirations and creating opportunities
• Championing our local environment
• Working with partners to improve quality of life
• Financial sustainability and openness
Councillor Mark Stephenson, TDC Leader, said it was important the Vision reflected the priorities of the local community.
“Our Vision is drawn from what we as councillors heard on the doorstep at the May elections – with feedback provided by all members during the induction process – but we really want to listen to what the public say is important to them.
“This document drives the direction of TDC for four years, so we are so keen to hear your views so we can then ensure our focus, priorities and resources are all pulling in the same direction to deliver for Tendring.”
Following the seven-week consultation, the Vision will be further reviewed in light of the feedback received, before a target adoption date by full council in November.

The consultation is being supported by an independent company, Mackman Research, who will also be carrying out more in-depth consultation with a representative sample of residents and businesses, as well as partners.
