Our Vision and our Mission
Our vision centres on leading a community that is making Stroud district a better place to live, work and visit for everyone.
Our Council Plan sets out how we will do this, focusing on three key areas:
- Environment and Climate Change: protecting our environment and leading the district to carbon neutrality in 2030
- Community Resilience and Wellbeing: strengthening and supporting our communities so people feel included and connected
- Economy, Recovery and Regeneration: supporting a thriving and resilient local economy
Our commitment to excellent service delivery and highly successful partnership working mean we continue to hit record levels of resident and business satisfaction, well above the national average.
We are innovative and ambitious, and our successful regeneration projects have seen us leading the way on high standard social housing, recycling and brownfield development. Our canal restoration project has been boosted by successful Heritage Lottery Fund awards. We lead the way on waste reduction and recycling and are developing a name for ourselves in our drive towards achieving a carbon neutral district.
Stroud District Council is led by a co-operative alliance of the Green, Independent Left, Community Independent and Liberal Democrat Groups.
There are 39 councillors: 17 Conservative, 5 Labour, 13 Green, 3 Liberal Democrat and 1 Conservative (No Group).
