Nottinghamshire City Council is the Unitary Authority for our area. The authority has responsibility for education, public health, city infrastructure, waste and safeguarding the environment. The full council consists of 55 elected councillors who together set policy and direct the activities of the council through the Executive Board.
The following Extract is taken from the current City Council Plan 2015-2019 which can be downloaded here.
In this plan we set out Nottingham City Council’s purpose and priorities for 2015-2019 with the aim of making us a Great City with citizens at the heart of
everything we do. Our plan is about the future of our city for all who live, work and visit here. Over the next four years, we are determined to create
a city that is fair for everyone and where we all have an equal and positive chance to succeed. We will build on our achievements and continue to provide services that are based on and responsive to your needs. Our aim is for Nottingham to be an internationally successful and prosperous city that offers its residents the means and opportunities to realise their potential. Nottingham will be a thriving, sustainable city both economically and socially. We
will continue to work with our partners and communities to ensure vulnerable citizens are supported to live independently and are safe from harm.
We will do this despite the significant financial challenges the Council continues to face. It is no secret that we face further cuts to our budget, but we have been successful at managing our finances in the past and we will continue to do so. The scale of our ambition is unchanged.
We will have difficult decisions to make over the next four years but we will continue to have the best interests of Nottingham’s citizens at heart and continue to invest in Nottingham’s future.
