Vision and priorities

Newport City Council's Corporate Plan 2022-27 (pdf) sets out the Council's strategic direction over the next five years. 

The Council's Corporate Plan supports the Welsh Government's Well-being of Future Generations Act seven National Well-being Goals and the council's strategic priorities for the next 5 years. 

Newport Council's four well-being objectives are:

  1. Economy, Education & Skills - Newport is a thriving and growing city that offers excellent education and aspires to provide opportunities for all.
  2. Newport's Environment and Infrastructure – A city that seeks to protect and enhance our environment whilst reducing our carbon footprint and preparing for a sustainable and digital future.
  3. Preventative and Equitable Community and Social Care – Newport is a supportive city where communities and care are at the heart of what we do.
  4. An Inclusive, Fair, and Sustainable Council – Newport City Council is an inclusive organisation that places social value, fairness and sustainability at its core.

Each well-being objective is supported by several Strategic Priorities (Steps).

The Council's Transformation Plan sets out the council's key programmes and projects which will support the delivery of the Corporate Plan, and improve the delivery of our services to residents, businesses, and other stakeholders.

Each service area in the council has developed their service plan which will support and contribute towards the delivery of these objectives.

To deliver the Corporate Plan, the council has developed four principles which it will expect all officers to support and for decisions to have considered in their development:

  1. Fair and Inclusive – We will work to create fairer opportunities, reduce inequalities in our communities and encourage a sense of belonging.
  2. Empowering each other – We will work with and support communities, groups, and partners to thrive.
  3. A Listening Council – The views of communities, service users and partners will shape the services we deliver and the places you live in.
  4. Newport's Values – Everyone who works and represents Newport City Council will put the citizen first, focusing on our core organisational values.

The Council has several strategic documents which support and enable delivery of the Corporate Plan. Links to these can be found on our corporate plans and policies page.
