Our vision is to become a more responsive local authority that works well in conjunction with employees, partners and communities to deliver on key priorities and to achieve better outcomes. We want to ensure that we have the right mix of skills, flexibility and capacity for change, whilst making sure we continue to improve the quality of our core services.

Service delivery

We must be flexible and able to recognise the differences between our customers and communities in both rural Stirling and in the city, whilst keeping in mind differing priorities.

We will move towards a council that directly delivers services and supports the delivery of services, in partnership with customers, communities and other organisations.

The council is also tasked with finding savings of £29M over the next 5 years and we need to be responsive to this financial challenge whilst continuing to deliver services which are worth around £200M per year over the same 5-year period.


Our aim is to also develop and modernise the way we deliver services. The Council is committed to improving the way it engages with employees, residents and other key stakeholders, which include the public, private, voluntary and community sectors.

Council Structure

A management restructure took place in autumn/winter 2014; this was designed to make the most of opportunities and to meet any upcoming challenges. For example: a greater emphasis on community planning, community engagement, health and social care integration and shared services. This has to function with managing customer expectations and the continuing financial challenge.

Our aim is to create an organisation that is focused on delivery, is open and transparent with our employees, partners, local communities and stakeholders. To start this we need the right people in the right positions, for us the key to success both internally and externally is through working as a team, across services.

Five Year Business Plan 

The 5 year business plan acts as a guide to enable all our citizens and communities to be Prosperous, Healthy, Achieving and Resilient.

The plan is reviewed every year and is updated in line with any changes in the Council’s priorities and any relevant external factors.

At its core are the Council's six Key Priorities which shape everything we do for our communities.
