These goals break down to the Five P's of Sustainable Development (see poster opposite) which are under pinned by the three major components of our local development planning for:

  • Economic growth
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Social inclusion

Our ethos forms the backbone of our great community work and runs through all our projects ensuring we give our very best for our staff and our fantastic community.
