"A dynamic process which enables all people to realise their
potential and improve their quality of life in ways which
simultaneously protect and enhance the earth's life support
Cornwall County Council promoted sustainable development for the
benefit of one and all in the management and delivery of all its
services through integrated social, economic and environmental
objectives; seeking to achieve its vision of "a strong and
sustainable community for One and All."
For Cornwall Council, the goal of sustainable development will
be pursued by integrated actions designed to achieve a sustainable,
innovative and productive economy that delivers high levels of
employment; and a just society that promotes social inclusion,
sustainable communities and personal wellbeing.
This will be done in ways that protect and enhance the physical
and natural environment, and use resources and energy as
efficiently as possible. Similar objectives will inform all
our endeavours with partner organisations, with the County Council
promoting sustainable solutions to today’s most pressing
environmental, economic and social problems.
