In 2015, Bury Council produced a Vision, Purpose and Values document. It sets out the council's strategic direction for the council towards 2020.

The plan outlines the vision for the Council - to lead, shape and maintain a prosperous, sustainable, Bury that is fit for the future.

There are six priorities to help provide the focus for our work:

  1. Drive forward through effective marketing and information, proactive engagement with the people of Bury to take ownership of their own health and wellbeing.
  2. Continue to develop business friendly policies to attract inward investment and new jobs so that Bury retains its position as a premier destination for retail, leisure, tourism and culture.
  3. Ensure new and affordable housing is developed to support growth in the Bury and Greater Manchester economy.
  4. Build on the culture of efficiency and effectiveness through new, progressive and integrated partnership working models to drive forward the Council's and Greater Manchester Public Service growth and reform agenda.
  5. Ensure staff have the right skills to embrace significant organisational change, through embedding a culture of ownership, empowerment and decision making at all levels of the organisation.
  6. Work toward reducing reliance on government funding by developing new models of delivery that are affordable, add value and based on need.
