Hull’s new Community Plan, which will shape the city for the next decade, has been approved with cross-party support at today’s Full Council meeting. Earlier this year, the council worked with local organisations to carry out detailed engagement with people across the city. These conversations helped set out what matters most to local people – their future hopes for Hull and themselves.
Having worked through the responses, a set of six ambitions and three commitments have been developed. These will now provide a focus for the council and other organisations in the city as they work with residents and communities to deliver a new vision for Hull over the next ten years.
By working together, making the views and voices of Hull residents and communities the priority, it will ensure future plans for Hull are determined by all those living and working in the city. The community Plan is seen as plan for the city and by the city of Hull. On Wednesday November 29, organisations from across the city will come together for an event to discuss the plan and what happens next.
The six ambitions are:
- Safe and welcoming neighbourhoods
- A healthier and fairer Hull
- Reaching our potential
- Economic growth that works for all
- Responding to the climate and nature emergency
- Our culture, our heritage, our city
The three commitments are:
- Engagement of all residents and communities
- Strong, united leadership committed to improving outcomes
- A focus on inclusion.
Cllr Mike Ross, Leader of Hull City Council, said: “From the start, our aim was to listen to residents to make sure their views and priorities were at the heart of the city’s new Community Plan.
“This plan sets out a vision to make our city a greener, cleaner, safer and fairer place. Putting Hull on the right course for years to come.
“I would like to thank all those who have been involved in its development, from local residents and voluntary groups to our partners across the city. It would not have been possible without them.
“This plan is rooted deeply within the city including public, private, business and the voluntary sectors.
“By working together, we are making changes to move the city forward and get the basics right.
“I know there is a commitment amongst a whole host of organisations in Hull to be part of the process of making this plan a reality in action. We are already seeing that change taking place and with this plan we will move Hull forward in the right direction in the years to come.”
