We are already making good progress and our plan for ‘Ambitious Cornwall’ has ambitious goals. We are creating an integrated and improved public transport system, producing more of the energy we need locally, making better use of buildings owned by the public sector and joining together our health and social care services.

We want to improve the prosperity of Cornwall, for our people and our places, and have organised our work as an organisation around the following set of key outcomes: 

  • Our People - Ensuring that we protect and support our most vulnerable residents at various stages of their life, securing the best possible start for our children and young adults and promoting the independence, inclusion and well-being of vulnerable adults
  • Our Places - Developing and maintaining our spaces and places (the neighbourhoods of Cornwall) so they are clean and sustainable, with safe, active and resilient communities
  • Our Prosperity - Maximising the potential for economic growth and development in Cornwall, including ensuring that sufficient housing, transport and infrastructure is provided across Cornwall
  • How we do Business - Increasing public confidence and trust in Cornwall Council through smarter ways of working and greater levels of transparency and accountability to residents, as well as transforming public services in Cornwall through effective performance and partnerships

We are seeking talented, ambitious and dedicated individuals to join our senior management team, to help us achieve these outcomes and to make sure that Cornwall Council is well placed to deliver sustainable services and face future challenges.
