  • Building the strongest partnerships with our communities, businesses and all with an interest in making the city and its people stronger
  • Working to grow the city’s economy and create greater opportunities for all

We believe these things individually and as a group. They guide our day-to-day decision making.  This is how we set out to achieve them:  

  • To inspire - where everyone motivates, engages, challenges, and stretches each other
  • To strive for excellence - where everyone recognises their own potential and becomes the best they can be
  • To demonstrate integrity - where everyone is committed to being open in all we do and to be honest and do the right thing
  • To show respect - where we listen, consider the views of others and value everyone
  • To innovate - where new ideas and thinking are generated around people, products and processes
