Nottingham City Council has committed to building or buying 1,000 council houses and creating thousands of new jobs over the next decade.

Councillors have signed off on the local authority’s 2019-2023 plan which sets out the councils priorities and ambitions for the next decade.

The plan commits the council to building or buying 1,000 council or social homes for rent, as well as creating 15,000 jobs in Nottingham.

It also sets out the council’s ambition to build ‘the best children’s library in the UK’ and ensure Nottingham is ‘the cleanest big city in England’.

‘In this plan, we set out our priorities for 2019-23 with the aim of improving our great city while keeping citizens at the heart of everything we do,’ council leader David Mellen and chief executive Ian Curryer said.

‘It is about the future of our city for all who live, work, study, invest and visit here. We will use this document to lead the plans and decisions we make over the next four years.

‘Our goal is for Nottingham to be an internationally successful and prosperous city that offers its residents the opportunity to realise their potential.

‘Nottingham will be a thriving, sustainable city both socially and economically. We will work with our partners and communities to ensure vulnerable citizens are supported to live independently and are safe from harm.’
