Policy Framework

We adopt a series of policies and strategies as our Policy Framework.

Policy Framework documents set the policies within which decisions are made on behalf of the community by executive decision makers including -

  • the leader
  • cabinet and its sub-committees
  • area committees
  • the Health and Wellbeing Board
  • officers exercising delegated powers
  • the council committees
  • officers exercising Regulatory Powers, Planning and Licensing

The refreshed City Plan presents the next stage in our journey as a city, under the now joint economic and fair growth aspirations of the City Plan approach.

Hull City Council Corporate Plan 2018 to 2022

This Corporate Plan set out our vision, priorities and values for the next 4 years. This will guide everything we will do as an organisation and how we will go about it as we work towards securing a positive and sustainable future for the city.

It focuses on major issues that need specific attention rather than listing every activity that we undertake. The Corporate Plan helps us target limited resources and provides framework against which we can assess our progress.

Development Plan

The Development Plan and associated documents provide the framework for decision making by the council’s Planning Committee and Officers. The committee have delegated decision-making powers when considering applications for Planning Consent.

Licensing Authority Policy Statements

The Licensing Authority Policy Statements provide the framework for decision making by our Licensing Committee when considering applications for activities regulated by the Licensing Committee through the Licensing and Gambling Acts.

  • live healthier
  • longer
  • happy lives
  • safely and independently

Local Transport Plan 2011 to 2026

To provide and develop a safe and efficient transport system the local transport plan aims to contribute to the social, environmental and economic well-being of the residents, businesses and visitors to the City. Whilst also providing equal opportunities for everyone to access key services using, where possible, 'green' alternatives to the private car.
