Councils need to ensure that they are prioritising measures that will create the greatest impact and lining up all of the organisation’s resources behind the things that matter most.

Yet, there is also a very different question to answer. How do councils align their organisations, their money and their resources to the strategic priorities set by members?
This is not straightforward since these priorities need to be the product of a clear vision for the area, clear outcomes for the community and a strategy for delivering those outcomes. This really does challenge what a council is there to do, how it interprets its commercial remit and how it relates to its community.”
