Our policies and procedures

Strategies and Plans

Our strategies and plans set out what we will focus on to ensure North Lincolnshire remains a safe, well, prosperous and connected place to live and work.

The Council Plan [2022-25] guides all of our activity, setting out the priorities we will concentrate on and the way we will work in order to deliver better outcomes across North Lincolnshire.

We produce other strategies and plans that enable us to deliver on the Council Plan’s four priorities. You can read some of the key ones below.

Priority 1: Keeping people safe and well

Priority 2: Enabling resilient and flourishing communities

Priority 3: Enabling economic growth and renewal

  • Core Strategy [2011-26] – to determine the future pattern of development in North Lincolnshire and help make decisions on planning applications. A new Local Plan is currently in development that will eventually replace this strategy, guiding decisions and investment on development and regeneration up until 2036.
  • Economic Growth Plan [2023-28] – to deliver increased prosperity for North Lincolnshire by stimulating sustainable economic growth.

Priority 4: Providing value for money for local taxpayers

  • Financial Strategy (including Budget [2023-24] and Medium-Term Financial Plan [2023-26] – to ensure we maintain a robust and financially sustainable position, achieve good value for money and keep council tax low.
  • Anti-Fraud and Corruption Strategy [2021] – to minimise the risk of fraud and corruption occurring and ensure effective action is taken when fraudulent activity is suspected and identified.
