Knowsley Council is committed to sharing as much information about our programmes and plans as possible.

This section highlights information on a number of key plans and strategies across the Council and wider Knowsley Better Together partnership.

Knowsley 2030

The Council has worked closely with local strategic partners, residents, businesses and other stakeholders to co-produce the Knowsley 2030 strategy. The strategy focuses on five strategic outcomes which set out that, by 2030, Knowsley will be a place:-

  • where strong and safe communities can shape their future;
  • where people are active and healthy, and have access to the support they need;
  • where people of all ages are confident and can achieve their full potential;
  • with a thriving, inclusive economy with opportunities for people and business; and,
  • with welcoming, vibrant, well-connected neighbourhoods and town centres.

Corporate plan

The Corporate Plan sets out the Council’s key priorities: a sustainable budget strategy; sustainable children’s services; improvement in adult social care; and business growth, jobs and housing.

In July 2020, within the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Council’s Cabinet agreed to maintain these priorities throughout 2020/21.  It was also agreed to revise the Corporate Plan to reflect the additional focus required on “COVID-19 Recovery” – including effective outbreak management and responding to the needs of residents and businesses.

City Region

Knowsley is working together with other local authorities to address key issues. The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority provides transparent and accountable strategic decision making for economic development, transport, strategic housing and employment and skills functions. 

Covid-19 Outbreak Management Plan 

As part of the borough’s plans for recovery from Covid19, we have developed an Outbreak Management Plan.
The plan describes the co-ordinated efforts of the Council and partners to prevent outbreaks of Covid19 and how we will support the national NHS Test and Trace programme. Further details about Test and Trace can be found here.
Also included in the plan is the governance arrangements should an outbreak be declared in Knowsley.
