Council key priorities
Stirling’s new political leadership set out its key priorities for the next three years.
Priorities are listed below.
We will look after all of our citizens, from early years through to adulthood, by providing quality education and social care services, to allow everybody to lead their lives to their full potential.
We will target all forms of poverty across our communities and mitigate the impact of austerity and welfare cuts on those hit the hardest.
We will create more affordable housing and social housing in all of Stirling’s communities. We will lead by example as an organisation in setting exceptional standards in building practice, environmental practice, employer practice, tenant relations and homelessness prevention.
We will deliver inclusive economic growth and promote prosperity. We will deliver a City Region Deal and pursue policies and solutions that encourage high quality, high paying jobs into all of Stirling’s communities.
We will create and implement environment and infrastructure improvements. We will deliver new ownership and delivery methods around energy generation, public transport and internet access, ensuring profits and services work to community, not commercial priorities.
We will commit and coordinate our resources to ensuring Stirling becomes a must visit destination; with heritage, culture, environment and economic strategies working hand in hand to encourage tourists to stay for a minimum of three days and two nights.
