BARNSLEY Council has launched a new plan setting out its priorities over the next three years.

The plan explains what the council does and how they will do it. It also highlights achievements made over the last three years and identifies the opportunities and challenges ahead.

The council’s three priorities remain similar to before. They are a thriving and vibrant economy, people achieving their potential and strong resilient communities.

Coun Stephen Houghton said: “Like many other public sector bodies, we face many further challenges and changes over the next three years.

"Our corporate plan helps us to be clear about our priorities, how we are going to work, and what we are going to achieve with reducing resources."
