Our approach to equalities and how we meet legal requirements under the Equality Act 2010 are explained on this page.
We are committed to providing equality in our policy-making, service delivery and employment. We want to continue to improve the quality of life for residents and work towards sustainable economic growth whilst providing value for money services. This is reflected in our Corporate Plan [PDF].
Our annual equality report and action plan sets out our broad objectives.
Equality impact assessments (EIA)
We use EIAs to ensure that all policy, projects and schemes do not discriminate against anyone.
