Policies, plans and strategies


We produce reports and plans, as well as publications and leaflets offering advice and guidance. We are directed by policies that govern our services and how they are provided. Some of these are from central Government and some are decided by local elected councillors.

Budgets

The Council Budget Book 2013/2014 is produced as part of the Rent and Council Tax setting process. It is a Revenue and Capital financial plan for Epping Forest District Council.

 

Corporate Plan

The Corporate Plan 2015-2020 is the Council’s highest level strategic document, setting out the direction for the authority for these five years. It describes our vision for the district, and outlines key aims and objectives which are designed to ensure that the vision becomes a reality. Therefore the Plan doesn’t cover everything that we do, concentrating instead on a number of key areas that the Council needs to focus on over these five years. You can view the Corporate Plan using the link below:

Executive (Cabinet) Forward Plan and Work Plan

There is a legal requirement for local authorities to publish a Forward Plan setting out the key decisions to be made in the four-month period ahead. Each successive Forward Plan has to be published and available for public inspection at least two weeks before the first day of the first month of the four-month period. Copies of the Forward Plan are available for inspection at the Council’s information offices throughout the District, as well as on the Council’s website in the Your Council section. The Executive (i.e. the Cabinet) is required by the Constitution to have a work programme, which indicates how the aims and objectives set out in the Council will be achieved. The work programme covers the year ahead and is found on the Forward Plan page.

Key Objectives

Each year we set a range of key objectives for the next twelve months which support the delivery of the Corporate Plan. The key objectives are the important targets that we want to achieve during the year, and each objective has a set of actions to be completed in order for it to be fully met.  Details of the key objectives and our progress towards their achievement for the current and previous years, can be viewed on our Current Performanceand Historic Performance pages.
