Oxford City Council Draft Corporate Plan 2013 / 2017 and Draft Budget 2013 / 14

Our draft Corporate Plan 2013 - 2017
The Corporate Plan is the City Council’s over-arching strategic document, setting the strategic direction of the Council over the next four years.

This plan updates and takes forward the priorities of the Corporate Plans agreed by Council in recent years.

The City Council’s corporate plans over the last three years have affirmed the Council’s ambition – developed with our partners, including business, community organisations, the health and education sectors and the County Council – to make Oxford a world-class city for everyone. They have also affirmed our plans for transforming the way that the Council performs. 

Key themes in this year’s plan include:

  • Continuing to invest in the city (for example, through our programme to build new homes and to improve the city’s leisure facilities) and by working with our partners to help build on the cityregion’s knowledge economy and attract inward investment;
  • Expanding the options and opportunities available to young people - particularly in the more deprived areas of the city - through our programmes to improve educational attainment and promote youth ambition;
  • Continuing to improve the quality of houses in multiple occupation in the private rented sector; and
  • Embedding the principles of sustainability and carbon reduction at the heart of everything that the Council does and working through Low Carbon Oxford to grow the green economy.

Our draft budget - a fair future for Oxford

Our medium-term financial strategy incorporates our spending plans for the next four years (2013/14 to 2016/17), including the draft budget and the proposals for the next financial year (2013/14).

Between 2013/14 and 2016/17 our overall General Fund Revenue Budget is planned to reduce from £24.133 million to £21.891 million.This is a reduction of just over £2.242 million.
