Our West Dunbartonshire Strategic Plan details the vision, mission and values of the Council.  In ensuring we are a prosperous area recognised as dynamic with a successful Scotland, we are committed to leading and delivering high quality and responsive services.  The Strategic plan details the priorities of the Council:

  • A strong local economy and Improved job opportunities;
  • Supported individuals, families and carers living independently and with dignity;
  • Meaningful engagement with active, empowered and informed citizens who feel safe and engaged;
  • Open, accountable & accessible local government; and
  • Efficient and effective frontline services that improve the everyday lives of residents. 

This approach ensures that we focus on the needs and aspirations of our residents and organise our services in the most effective and efficient ways to delivery our long term outcomes.

We have set a range of performance indicators (PIs) which help us measure our progress in delivering on our ambitions.   We are committed to being open and transparent about our progress so that residents and others can easily track our performance and hold us to account.  In doing this we will publish regular updates to show how the council is progressing against specific targets.
