Safe - where people are safe and the vulnerable are put first and supported.
Strong - where people work together, can enjoy good health and wellbeing throughout their life and feel that they belong to a thriving community.
Ambitious - where we support our children and young people to achieve their full potential, skills are valued, jobs and businesses are growing and we have the infrastructure to create a city for the future.
