Five Year Strategy

Have your say on the next Five Year Strategy

We are working on our ‘Five Year Strategy’ which will shape what we do over the coming years, and we want to hear from you.  

We're having conversations with local people, businesses and organisations to help to understand how we can make Surrey Heath an even better place to live and work. 

We've been looking at key information about the Borough and its communities, including the devastating impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on people both economically and socially.   

The Council is committed to taking action on climate change, helping the increasing number of people who find themselves in poverty in Surrey Heath and increasing our focus on the health and quality of life of our residents.  This means more investment to support our vibrant villages and rural communities, alongside our continuing improvements to Camberley town centre.  

We're keen to listen to what is important to you, your family and your community.

Current Five Year Strategy

Surrey Heath is moving with the times and whilst the next five years will bring its challenges in a fast changing environment there are exciting opportunities too. We are aware of the need to become self-sustaining in terms of our finances, we recognise the requirement to meet the needs of our community in terms of every age range and as technology continues to advance in leaps and bounds Surrey Heath wants to embrace the digital age, making services more accessible.

Surrey Heath is already one of the safest, cleanest and greenest, most prosperous places to live and it is important that we preserve this for future generations. We are committed to securing successful outcomes, whilst rising to the challenges ahead.

We have grouped our approach to these challenges under 4 themes:
  • Place – continued focus on our vision to make Surrey Heath an even better place to live. Clean, green and safe. Where people enjoy and contribute to a high quality of life and a sustainable future.
  • Prosperity – to sustain and promote our local economy so people can work and do business across Surrey Heath, promoting an open for business approach that attracts investment and complements our place.
  • Performance – to deliver effective and efficient services better and faster.
  • People – to build and encourage communities where people can live happily and healthily in an environment that the Community is proud to be part of.

In this strategy we set out the priorities for each of these themes over the coming 5 years which, in turn, will inform our Annual Plans.
