The Council Business Plan


Council House

The Council publishes its annual Business Plan and budget each financial year. It is an important document that explains our key priorities and how we are going to deliver them.

The Future Council

Birmingham faces a future where working together with residents, businesses, community groups and the voluntary sector has never been so important.

Our aim is to create a sustainable, future-proof model of local public services – focused on supporting the needs of people, partnership working, empowered staff, and community engagement.

Our values

  • Putting residents first
  • Acting courageously
  • Being true to our word
  • Achieving excellence

Council Business Plan and Budget 2016+

The plan sets out a vision for 2020 and describes how we plan to achieve this vision.

The vision is based on the fundamental ideals of prosperity, fairness and democracy set out in previous years. Within this, there are six key strategic outcomes: a strong economy, safety and opportunity for all children, a great future for young people, thriving local communities, a healthy, happy population and a modern council.

The Council Business plan is geared towards delivering these outcomes. You can view the plan below.
