The Plan for North Lanarkshire

Programme of work

The purpose of the Programme of Work is to establish the priorities for delivery in support of The Plan for North Lanarkshire. 

An annual review process has supported the development of the Programme of Work to ensure that the priorities for delivery remain framed within the most up to date demographic, social, and economic context that exists for the place that is North Lanarkshire, as well as the latest national policy developments and priorities.

The five year Programme of Work to 2028 was approved in March 2023 and this comprises seven priorities for delivery:

  • Transforming Places - To better plan and co-ordinate public and private sector investment to deliver transformational change across town centres and local communities at pace.  
  • Invest in North Lanarkshire - Accelerated outcome delivery and investment via a more streamlined advisory service and aligned operating model and infrastructure plan.
  • Sustainable Futures - Focus commitments to Net Zero Carbon and climate resilience and the associated energy solutions and investments required to make it a reality.
  • Resilient People - Deliver whole family support locally, when families need it, in a way that addresses the impacts of poverty and reduces inequality.
  • Brighter Futures - Support and improve educational attainment, employment opportunities, entrepreneurship, and volunteering.
  • Digital North Lanarkshire - Develop a skilled digital workforce, promote an innovative, sustainable culture and be the Digital Leader for a transformed North Lanarkshire.
  • One Service - Ensure services are delivered, regardless of owner, in a streamlined, efficient, and supportive model, with the overall vision of inclusive growth and prosperity for all.

The accompanying booklet sets out more detail in respect of the seven Programme of Work priorities (this is available from the link below).  This included an outline of what each aims to achieve and the intended impact on the 28 Health Check Indicators, as well as initial high level actions for delivery.
