Consultation on the HDC draft Corporate Plan for 2023-2027

Hart District Council has launched a consultation on their draft Corporate Plan for 2023-2027, inviting residents and stakeholders to comment on their priorities for the next four years. The Council’s current Corporate Plan was adopted in 2017. Following an unprecedented last three years and increasing demand for Council services, they will now look at priorities for the next four years.  

To gather these, a public consultation has been launched and is running on the Hart District Council’s website from Tuesday 1st November until 5pm on Sunday 18th December. There are four questions in total and it should only take 5-10 minutes to complete.

This Corporate Plan will shape the projects and work the Hart District Council undertakes and therefore comments are sought from as many residents and stakeholders as possible to ensure the focus reflects the priorities of everyone in Hart.  

Responses can be made via Hart District Council’s website by visiting Corporate Plan 2023 – 2027 | Hart District Council, where you will also find a copy of the draft plan. Paper copies are available on request by email to communications@hart.gov.uk, telephone to 07816 109683 or in person at the Civic Offices.  

What is in the Plan?

The HDC Corporate Plan is broken down into three focus areas. These are:

  • Planet –  tackling climate change is central to all our activities and we plan to lead our community to net zero carbon. We will produce and implement an action plan with the ambition of becoming a net zero carbon and climate-resilient Council by 2035 and district by 2040.
  • People – fair treatment for all, help for those in need, and a sustainable economy that makes Hart a great place to live, work and enjoy. We need to continue our people-centred approach which directs wealth back into the local economy and places control and benefits in the hands of people. We will work with our key local partners such as Hampshire County Council, the voluntary sector, local businesses, the Community Safety Partnership, police, NHS, and education providers to provide more local sustainability.
  • Place – delivering warmer, better homes in sustainable locations that people can afford to live in. The home in which we live has a huge influence on the quality of all our lives and health. Access to safe, secure, and affordable housing really is fundamental to supporting wellbeing and creating sustainable communities where people can live and work.

The focus areas will be underpinned by providing a resilient and financially sound Hart District Council for the next four years.
