Our Corporate Plan for 2017-20 shows what we aim to achieve over the next three years to improve things for you and your community.
It helps us to be clear about our priorities, how we're going to work to deliver them, and how we can make a difference with the reducing amount of resources available to us. The plan is based on the council's new vision - working together for a brighter future, a better Barnsley.
