RESIDENTS are invited to share their ideas on what they think the council should be focusing on in the next four years.

Braintree Council is asking for the public’s thoughts on what should be included in its corporate strategy for the 2020 and 2024 period.

The corporate strategy highlights the council’s priorities and outlines what targets it will work towards in a four year period.

Our new cabinet is keen to ensure our work meets the needs of the district and seeks to address some of the challenges our communities and businesses are facing.

"In shaping our new corporate strategy for 2020-2024 we want to hear from you, what makes the district a good place to live and work and how could it be better.
