What is Bury 2030?
A vision for our Borough
By 2030 no matter who you are, or where you live, people in the borough of Bury will have equal chances to be the best they can be.
Bury Council will measure progress against this vision by ensuring that the healthy life expectancy of people in our borough will be higher than the average for England by 2026, and that by 2030 we will have reduced the difference between life expectancy across our townships. We are using this measure because life expectancy is influenced by every aspect of your life and we all have a role to plan in making improvements – for example your physical and mental health; the housing you live in; the work you do and community you live in.
We think it is time to crack on with this ambition – we are using the words of the late great Victoria Wood, daughter of Prestwich, to describe our plan: “Let’s do it”. The plan will only succeed if everyone supports it, however. Is this a good vision for our Borough? Is it something we can achieve? Tell us what you think by taking part in this consultation.
Your invitation to shape our future
Bury 2030 started last year with a “Big Conversation” in which 1,100 people from around the borough gave us their thoughts, wishes and concerns.
This feedback has helped to produce this latest plan – but if it is to succeed, it must have widespread support from all sections of the community: residents and businesses, young and old.
That’s why we’re inviting everyone to join in and help us produce a plan that is truly backed by Bury.
The call to action
This is not just a “council” plan. This belongs to us all, and we can play a role to play in making it happen.
