Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Annual update on the delivery of the corporate strategy and COVID response for 2021/22 -information only.


To note the progress in delivering the Corporate Strategy in 2021/22 and also the Council’s response to the pandemic during that period.

Reasons for the decision:

Full Council adopted a new four-year Corporate Strategy at its meeting on 25 February 2020. The document set a new direction for the Council, reflecting the aims of the administration elected in May 2019 and providing a clear approach to the Council’s activities and priorities. It was updated in the light of the pandemic, as set out in a report to Cabinet in July 2020.


The Corporate Strategy is the Council’s overarching strategic plan. It sets out what we plan to do, how we plan to do it, and how we will measure performance over the next four years.


Despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, which placed significant pressures on the council, our communities, local businesses and partner organisation, good progress was made in delivering the Corporate Strategy in 2020-21.


The council- including staff volunteers- played an important role in supporting the NHS’s roll-out of the vaccine, as well as providing a comprehensive local pandemic response through the delivery of its Local Outbreak Management Plan. The Community Wellbeing Hub, a collaboration between Bath & North East Somerset Council, HCRG Care Group (formerly Virgin Care) and wide range of partner and third sector organisations, continued to provide support for local people. 3SG (Third Sector Group) also played a crucial role in mobilising volunteer support for the Hub and for the vaccine roll-out.
