Council plan - commitment

I am often asked what it is that I love about my job. And, unquestionably, the answer is the people and the pride they have in doing their job well. People who work for Aberdeenshire Council do so with an immense amount of pride and a desire to do the very best for this area and the people who live here.

Each day we see that demonstrated, from the staff who help educate our young people, care for our elderly and vulnerable, keep the roads network moving safely and maintain the myriad other services at the front line for which we are responsible.

This council plan and associated priorities give us a clear direction on the most important things we need to do to deliver a successful Aberdeenshire. We will direct our resources towards delivering on the priorities whilst continuing to review how we maintain services in new and increasingly efficient ways.

We will work across services and geography, with partners and with communities. We will look at ourselves, at others and to the future.

I look forward to reporting back each year on how we are doing.
