'Our Council' Change Programme

The 'Our Council' Change Programme sets out a range of actions which will strengthen how the Council operates and delivers its priorities.

It is centred around five key themes:

  1. Vision - Being clear on where we are, where we need to go and how we're going to get there
  2. Development - A comprehensive learning, development, support, and wellbeing offer for all employees and elected members
  3. Resources - Clear alignment between what we want to achieve and our people, money, equipment, and facilities, while reviewing how well we are doing
  4. Governance - Making fair, informed and appropriate decisions
  5. Capacity - More capacity to support how we need to work as a Council

Community Priorities

In March 2021, South Tyneside Council set out 5 Community Priorities focused on delivering for the people of South Tyneside:

  1. Support our young people in need
  2. Support families and older or vulnerable people
  3. Create the conditions for economic recovery and investment
  4. Support all our town centres, villages, high streets and hospitality
  5. Invest in our natural and built environment

These priorities are in addition to everything the Council does day to day to keep South Tyneside a great place to live, invest and bring up families.

Our priorities are based on what we already know, and what residents and businesses have told us.

We will continue to reach out directly to residents and businesses to find out the issues that are most important to you.

The following report provides information about the performance of South Tyneside Council against our 5 Community Priorities, and highlights some of our achievements to date:
