Herefordshire Council is consulting with local people on a new four year Corporate Plan covering the period 2020-2024. This will determine the new council’s policy and investment priorities for Herefordshire and will set the scene for a more detailed consultation on the 2020-21 budget which will commence in early November.

Councillor Liz Harvey, Herefordshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance and Corporate Services, said:

“We want Herefordshire Council’s priorities to reflect what is really important to people living and working in Herefordshire. We feel that community, economy and environment are the things people care most about.
