Council Strategy

The Council Strategy shapes the work of Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) and sets out its vision and priorities.

Council Strategy 2019-24

MVDC's vision and priorities are set out in the Council Strategy 2019-2024 (see 'Downloads'). The strategy also includes four guiding principles, which guide our approach to decision-making.

The strategy was developed alongside the budget setting process in 2018-19. As part of the development we conducted a consultation to gain feedback on the draft strategy. The Strategy was approved by Council in February 2019 and came into effect on 1 April 2019. Subsequent revisions to the Strategy were approved by Council in October 2019 and July 2020.

Our strategy includes five core values:

  • We Listen
  • We Trust
  • We Lead
  • We Care
  • We Respect

Annual Plan

The Annual Plan sets out the key areas of work on which MVDC will have a particular focus over the financial year and demonstrates how it will deliver the commitments for each of the Council Strategy priorities. Progress made on these are reported in the Business and Budget monitoring reports to the Cabinet.
