Council  vision, priorities and behaviours
Where everyone matters

Your East Riding...

Where everyone matters
“What could be more important than doing our absolute best to give everyone we serve the best possible quality of life?”

A new vision for the council is being rolled out over the coming weeks. The new vision reflects the challenges and opportunities the council faces both now and in the future.

Our priorities

The council priorities show how we will achieve the vision of Your East Riding... where everyone matters. Although the current priorities were still appropriate, it was agreed they needed to reflect the importance of children and young people.


Growing the economy

Working with others to support sustainable economic growth and strong communities, ensuring the East Riding is a great place to invest in, live, work and visit.

Valuing the environment

Responding to climate change, developing our infrastructure and safeguarding our heritage.

Promoting healthy lifestyles

Helping people to stay healthy, strong and fit for the future.

Protecting the vulnerable

Supporting in times of need, protecting from harm and improving the quality of life.

Helping children and young people achieve

Supporting and inspiring children to raise their aspirations and reach their potential.

“We have simplified the wording of our priorities and included the importance of helping children achieve their full potential.”

Our values and behaviours

The words 'quality', 'pride' and 'respect' from the old vision still resonate with many so these are being used to uphold the new values. The new values and behaviours help to guide how we work with each other, with our partners and residents and communities to achieve the vision.

  • I do my best for the people I serve

Pride

  • I am motivated and strive to continually improve services

Respect

We treat people fairly and are open, honest and lead by example

  • I care about my work, my colleagues and the people and communities I serve
  • I value people, listen and respect their views

Vision roadshow

The chief executive is inviting staff from across the council to attend face-to-face sessions where you can find out more about the plans and ask her questions and give feedback.
