A new vision for our borough in 2022

The past few years have brought a huge amount of change to all of our lives and in many cases led to changes to the way we live, work and spend our leisure time.

To ensure Oadby & Wigston Borough Council is also adapting to this period of change, our Councillors are currently reviewing first our Vision and then our Corporate Plan.

What is a Vision and why is it so important?

A Council’s vision is designed to strengthen the connection between the council and local people, providing a shared ambition that we can all strive towards.

The Vision should work for everyone – residents, businesses, community groups, young people, tenants and more.

Once agreed the Vision helps inform all the council’s major policies, decisions and plans for the years ahead – but we hope also informs the decisions being made my individuals, business, organisations and groups in the borough too. That’s why community involvement in developing a Vision is so important.

What has happened so far?

The Vision has been created by elected councillors that represent all of the wards in Oadby & Wigston and they have attended workshops with local government representatives and officers of the Council.

This work has given us a draft Vision that we now want to share publicly to gain your views. The overarching tagline for the Vision is proposed as being ‘Our Borough, The Place To Be’ with further objectives and a purpose forming part of that Vision…

How can I help?

Tell us what you think! Your views are invaluable if we are to create a Vision that belongs to all of us. This is our collective Vision and we want to gain your feedback to further shape and develop the draft Vision created by councillors.

To comment on the draft vision, please email communications@oadby-wigston.gov.uk by 31 August, 2022

Top Tip:

Try to remember the vision needs to contain fairly broad themes, rather than getting into the nitty gritty. Our new Corporate Plan will follow the creation of our Vision and this contains more detail of our specific approach to achieving the ambitions set out in the Vision itself.

If you would like to learn more about the Vision before submitting a comment, you can do so at our upcoming Residents' Forums.
