Introduction to the plan

The Bexley Plan guides our staff, contractors, partners and activity at every level of the council: it makes sure that our agreed outcomes and commitments are prioritised, tracked and delivered.

Man flying

It outlines our priorities and describes the principles that guide our approach. It also sets out the key programmes of work which will contribute to making real changes in what we achieve for our residents.

Underpinning this are the values that shape our behaviour and the way we relate to and respect colleagues, partners and above all, our residents.

This report does not seek to specify every step we plan to take, rather it is the framework that guides us towards our vision of making Bexley even better.

The Bexley Plan guides our strategies and policies across our directorates. Our Medium Term Financial Strategy, which is our five-year financial plan, is a key document. This strategy enables us to carefully allocate our financial resources to achieve our priority outcomes. The strategy takes account of planned changes in income and expenditure and sets out how we will meet our statutory requirement to set a balanced budget each year.
