DERRY City and Strabane District Council are seeking the public’s feedback on its draft Improvement Objectives for 2019/20.
Under Part 12 of the Local Government Act (NI) 2014, the Council has an obligation to produce a Performance Improvement Plan that strives towards continuous improvement in the quality of life of all our citizens.
The first draft is available online and Council is keen to get the views of the public on the key improvement objectives and to discover if there are any alternative objectives they would like to see considered this year or in future.
Among the improvement objectives identified are;
* to increase employment opportunities and economic growth through a range of measures;
* to assist and develop healthy lifestyles through increased participation in high quality leisure and sports activities;
* and to protect and enhance the environment through creating and supporting a culture of environmental stewardship.
Derry City and Strabane District Council Chief Executive, John Kelpie, encouraged the pubic to give their feedback on the draft objectives to allow Council to tailor its plans to meet their needs.
“As an organisation we are committed to delivering on the objectives and aspirations set out in the Improvement Plan,” he said.
“We are keen to hear the views and opinions of the public and would encourage everyone to view the plan and provide their feedback.
“While the Improvement Plan focuses specifically on Council’s key Improvement Objectives, we will continue to work to continuously improve.”
The public can give their feedback and propose new improvement objectives, or make comments on the draft improvement objectives 2019/20 by completing our online survey which is available at https://haveyoursay.derrystrabane.com/ or by emailing Council at Improvement@derrystrabane.com.
Alternatively, you make contact by phone on 028 71 253 253, Ext 4266 / 6704.
The closing date for this consultation is 29th May 2019.
