Our Senior Management Board is responsible for the delivery of the Council’s key strategic priorities and outcomes and provides strategic leadership over key drivers including resources, organisational culture, environmental sustainability and reducing inequalities.
In addition, the Senior Management Board works with its Councillors and Administration in seeking inward investment to Colchester, uses its own assets for further development and helps to deliver collective ambitions and priorities for the benefit of residents, businesses and visitors.
The Service Delivery Heads have full responsibility for the day-to-day delivery of services, the implementation of plans, and the management of staff. Budgets for the Council and individual services are shown in the Statement of Accounts
