About the Council Plan 2022 to 2027

The East Lothian Council Plan 2022-2027 continues the journey towards realising our vision for an even more prosperous, safe and sustainable East Lothian, with a dynamic and thriving economy, that enables our people and communities to flourish.

The plan is based around three overarching objectives set in response to the three fundamental challenges we face:

  • Recovery and Renewal – recovering from the COVID pandemic by investing in regeneration and a sustainable future
  • Reduce poverty and Inequality – supporting our communities to deal with the growing levels of poverty and inequality
  • Respond to the Climate Emergency – meeting our net zero climate change targets

In response to the systemic, long term challenges we face the previous Council Plan set out four thematic objectives which remain relevant for this plan:

  • Grow our Economy – increase sustainable and inclusive growth as the basis for a more prosperous East Lothian
  • Grow our People – give our children the best start in life and protect vulnerable and older people
  • Grow our Communities – give people a real say in the decisions that matter most and provide communities with the services, infrastructure and environment that will allow them to flourish
  • Grow our Capacity – deliver excellent services as effectively and efficiently as possible within our limited resources
