Improvement Planning

Corporate Plan 2019/20

What is our Corporate Plan?

Our Corporate Plan 2019-2020 is our plan for the future and sets out how we will plan and manage services in a more sustainable way.  The Plan is a requirement of the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.

The Corporate Plan is one of the ways in which we will achieve the vision we agreed in July 2016.  Working together, improving lives.  It is also one of the ways we will deliver the Pembrokeshire Public Service Board's Well-being Plan.  This was published in May 2018.  The plan has also been influenced by the Cabinet’s Programme for Administration 2018-22.


How our 2019-20 objectives compare with previous well-being objectives and the Programme for the Administration.

The Plan demonstrates how our well-being objectives meet the seven national well-being goals in the Act.  All of our objectives meet at least one national well-being goals.  We anticipate that our well-being objectives will change and develop as the Pembrokeshire Public Service Board's Well-being Plan evolves.

Previous legislation called the Local Government (Wales) Measure 2009 is still in force and we are under a duty to "make arrangements to secure continuous improvement in the exercise of our functions".  Alongside our six well-being objectives, our Corporate Plan details our transformation programme.  This is an ambitious five year programme to make substantial savings so that our spending does not exceed the resources available to us.

Each year we aim to improve quality of life in Pembrokeshire by providing better services to our customers and each year we consult with a wide range of people on the areas that should be prioritised for improvement.
