Plans, performance and policies
A Policy is defined as 'a course or principles of action adopted or proposed by an organisation or individual'. Therefore, a Policy is why Basildon Borough Council is doing something.
A Strategy is defined as 'a plan of action designed to achieve a long-term overall aim'. Therefore, a Strategy is how Basildon Borough Council is going to implement a Policy.
In 2021, Basildon Council invited the Local Government Association (LGA) to conduct a Peer Review of our ambitious plans to modernise our services to deliver for our residents over the coming years.
