Caerphilly County Borough Council Cabinet members
Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Cabinet Members have agreed a set of key commitments that they want to make to Caerphilly county borough residents.
They are a series of standards that residents can expect from the Cabinet, and are how they want to be held to account.
The Leader of the Council, Cllr Dave Poole said, “I believe this approach is unique, in that no other Cabinet in Caerphilly county borough’s history has ever done anything similar to this, in terms of making such a public declaration of its priorities and accountability.
“These new commitments set out seven key pledges that will help us shape the way we deliver services in the future. This is a bold move, and we are aware that we must be fully accountable by living up to these commitments, but my Cabinet colleagues and I are fully on board and we are committed to leading this authority from the front.
“We recognise that in order for the council to move forward, we need a clear vision and a robust set of priorities that sets the tone for the entire organisation”.
The Cabinet Commitments are:
- We will always do our best to protect jobs and services within the current challenging financial climate
- We will build on Caerphilly County Borough Council’s reputation as an innovative, high performing local authority
- We will ensure we have an engaged and motivated workforce
- We will always strive to ensure Caerphilly County Borough Council delivers value for money in everything it does
- We will help protect the most vulnerable people in our society and make safeguarding a key priority
- We will always welcome feedback and consider the views of residents, staff and other key stakeholders
- We will be open, honest and transparent in everything we do
Cllr Dave Poole continued, “I hope our residents will welcome this bold move; it’s important that they know what they can expect from the council’s political leadership and this set of commitments are how we want to be held to account over the coming years”
