A vision for a fairer, healthier and greener Greenwich has been passed by councillors as the Royal Borough of Greenwich agreed it’s new corporate plan.
Called Our Greenwich, this new blueprint covers everything from addressing the climate emergency, to tackling child food poverty, to reducing bureaucracy over the next four years.
Based around a series of missions that we will work towards, Our Greenwich was developed following a month-long engagement project that featured hundreds of conversations with residents, an online survey, and meetings with key partners.
Cllr Anthony Okereke, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, said: “Our Greenwich is about building the future we all want to see, because Greenwich belongs to us all. That’s why we opened this conversation up and spoke with everybody we could – we wanted to know what people cared about, what they thought we did well and what they thought we needed to work on.
“This plan has been written following some of the most turbulent times in modern history. It will now shape our decision making during a cost of living crisis; during a time where everyone, including us, is concerned about their budgets.
“Our Greenwich is the framework, but the hard work starts now. We know where we want to be by the end of this plan’s cycle, and by listening and working with and for residents, we’ll make this Our Greenwich.”
Our Greenwich sets the Council’s corporate priorities and is a key document for all decisions to be based around.
