What is a sustainable community strategy?
Our Sustainable Community Strategy aims to secure the future well-being of all those who live and work and visit Bolsover District. It represents our aimas and aspirations and has been developed following extensive consultation with the community and those who provide our services.

Certain underlying principles have been central to preparing the stategy:

Sustainability - to improve the quality of life for all we must address the three strands of economic, social and environmental well-being. But in meeting the needs of the present we should not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Positive action to promote equality, diversity and social inclusion - recognising that some communities need extra support, such as vulnerable people, older and younger people, people with disabilities, ethnic minorities and those who are socially excluded.
