3. The Council Strategy 2016 - 2025

Our ten-year council strategy is underway, and we are working to make Teignbridge an even better place to live, work, and visit for current and future generations.

We have a positive, clear direction for Teignbridge, and a good track record of implementing change and development. This strategy has been developed through listening to you and your needs, and through considering current and future challenges that we will face as a district.

From our research and consultation, we consider that our key objectives are:

  • more affordable housing
  • reducing carbon emissions
  • job creation
  • sustainable travel options
  • community-led planning
  • encouraging our young people to stay in the district
  • keeping our district clean, green, and safe

At the heart of the strategy is a series of overarching projects – the Teignbridge Ten – that will guide our activities, where we focus our resources, and how we will shape resources to withstand future technological, economic, and social changes, and deliver real progress for the district.

They will help us to continue championing the district, our people, environment, business, and heritage, while meeting its rapidly changing needs.
