New Quality of Life Strategy for North Norfolk District Council

North Norfolk District Council has announced the development of a Quality of Life Strategy, which was a key objective of the council’s Corporate Plan.

The strategy, which was approved by the cabinet in their meeting at the start of this month, has now been developed and set out to identify where there could be increased efforts to improve sustainability, education, housing, levelling up and more.

Councillor Virginia Gray, the portfolio holder for Leisure, Wellbeing and Culture, said:

“I would like to thank the groups which have supported our quality-of-life strategy. There’s hardly an area of North Norfolk District Council’s work which does not touch upon the quality of life of those of us who live here.

Very few district councils have made an explicit commitment to the well-being of their residents by writing a strategy like this one. We hope that it will be a guide to even better work in the future.”

The full list of the areas that the strategy will focus on is as follows:

  • Sustainability and energy use
  • Education and learning
  • People, communities, and participation
  • Transportation
  • Mental health and isolation
  • Housing
  • Covid response and recovery
  • Cost of living
  • Levelling up
  • Ukrainian families’ resettlement
  • Working in partnership

Working alongside an action plan that will be used to measure objectives as they are made, the strategy will be implemented across North Norfolk, which is well placed to put an emphasis on the factors that directly affect the quality of life of residents, such as housing, woodland, beaches, leisure centres and economic growth.

With the introduction of this strategy, the council are taking the initiative in tackling the issues that are affecting their residents, whilst also encompassing key priorities of other councils across the country, and the central government, like levelling up.
