Our Sheffield: One Year Plan

Decision Maker: Co-operative Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes



The report set out Sheffield City Council’s One Year Plan.  The One Year Plan is a clear statement of purpose for the year ahead describing the practical steps that we will take and actions we will deliver, working with our communities and partners, to improve the lives of everyone who lives in the city.


The Plan:

·       Sets out the first steps we will take on a roadmap to recovery from Covid-19, recognising the huge impact that the pandemic has had on the people and communities of Sheffield.  We will use the plan as a springboard to help us rebuild and recover from this once-in-a-generation shock to our way of life.

·       Provides clarity for people and communities so that they know what we stand for and what they should expect from Sheffield City Council in the year ahead

·       Offers clear purpose to our employees so that they know what is important to us, how their work contributes to our collective success and are empowered to bring their passion and energy to bear in service of clear objectives

·       Provides an ambitious statement to our partners, in Sheffield and beyond, that we want to collaborate and work together to achieve more for the city than we ever could working alone

·       Aligns to the themes of the new Transitional Committees, providing a focus for their work plans over the coming year

·       establishes the vital foundations for a longer-term corporate plan and priority-based budget for future years, with work proposed to start on a new 3-5 year plan this summer.




RESOLVED: That the Co-operative Executive:-


  1. Agrees the One Year Plan for Sheffield City Council;


  1. Agrees to receive regular progress updates on the delivery of the commitments in the One Year Plan during the year; and


3.    Notes the proposed new leadership and accountability arrangements for the executive senior leadership of the organisation and proposed investment in enhancing the leadership capacity of the Place Portfolio.




Reasons for Decision




The recommendations recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic has seen an unprecedented collaborative response from communities and public, private, and VCF sector partners in the city. The coming year is a pivotal moment for the city and the recommendations reflect the ambitions of the Co-operative Executive to deliver an immediate plan to support the city’s recovery and ensure that SCC is well-placed to respond to the ambitions and expectations of all our communities. The One Year Plan should therefore enable the Co-operative Executive and the Council to deliver and progress to be measured against the aims set out in this plan over the year.
