4. The Teignbridge Ten

They are areas of work which will each have a widespread impact on the economy, community wellbeing and environment. Individually, each will make a significant difference, but working together they have the potential to bring multiple and combined benefits, greater than if they were delivered in isolation.

The Teignbridge Ten programmes are:

  • Action on climate – to be a carbon neutral district
  • A roof over our heads – to provide more, better, and affordable homes
  • Clean scene – to keep the district clean
  • Going to town – to invest in town centres
  • Great places to live and work – to provide well designed quality neighbourhoods
  • Investing in prosperity – to create jobs and wealth
  • Moving up a gear – to improve travel options
  • Out and about and active – to provide opportunities for healthy active lifestyles
  • Strong communities – to engage with, help and support our communities
  • Vital Viable council – to deliver quality, value for money and flexible services

These programmes are likely to be reviewed and re-prioritised as part of the Coronavirus recovery programme.
