Bury’s public services are united in their vision for the borough.
Inspired by the saying “Let’s Do It!” from one of our borough’s most famous daughters, Victoria Wood, we are clear on our goals and direction.
Our aim is for the borough of Bury to make the fastest improvement in reducing levels of deprivation than any other post-industrial northern locality, by 2030.
Our Bury 2030 community strategy is a single strategy for the council, police, health, other public services, the voluntary, community and faith sector and by our business communities.
We have an opportunity to develop every township in the borough to be better and stronger than before the Covid-19 pandemic.
We can tackle the causes of inequality.
We can ensure that our children have a better start in life, with access to improved education and broader horizons.
We can help every adult to have the opportunity to be their very best through access to high quality, local work.
We can make sure that older residents stay connected and independent.
We can confront the great challenges ahead of us, from supporting local businesses to recover and thrive, to delivering net zero emissions and a cleaner environment for all.
Our strategy shows us how we can all play our part in local communities; with enterprising spirit; working together in a way that recognises and celebrates the assets and strengths of our communities and our residents.
And, with you as part of our team, we will do it … by connecting everyone to the plans for economic growth and public service improvement across every township.
