Introduction from Leader, Councillor Paul Foster
Our vision is simple. "A healthy and happy community, flourishing together in a safer and fairer borough that is led by a council recognised for being innovative, financially sustainable and accountable".
It is at the heart of our council and everything we do. It means a relentless focus on creating the conditions, partnerships and services that support improvements in the lives of our residents, ensuring they have opportunities to succeed and thrive.
We are living in challenging times that will fundamentally change our borough. Residents, communities and businesses will need more support both now and into the future. As a council we need to make sure that we are set up and ready to meet the challenge, working differently to help find solutions that work for local places and neighbourhoods. We also want to build quickly on the work that we've started to enhance South Ribble and do even more to make it a great place to live.
This strategy presents our four refreshed priorities. Click on each to get more information about the priority and how we plan to reach our goals.

Because a strategy is more than just words, we have set out the activity and projects that we will deliver towards these priorities and the outcomes that will be achieved for South Ribble.
I hope you will see this strategy as a commitment from your council to support , listen and work with you to develop a healthier, fairer and more sustainable borough where everyone can achieve their potential.
