Tackling traffic congestion in Evesham, creating new sporting destinations and cutting household waste are among a host of new promises unveiled by Wychavon to further improve the district.
Councillors also pledged to freeze Wychavon's share of the Council Tax bill for the third year in a row, as they approved the new Council Strategy at a meeting of the Executive Board on Wednesday (5 February).
The plan focuses Wychavon's spending and resources over the next four years on three key priorities – Supporting People, Strong Economy and Places and Sustainable Environment.
Schemes in the plan include:
The campaign to reduce litter and plastic use across Wychavon is also set to continue for another four years while the project to improve life chances in Droitwich West will also carry on for another two years.
Wychavon is also committing to reducing carbon emissions from its own operations by at least 50% by 2030. Full details will be released as part of Wychavon's Intelligently Green Plan which will be published in April.
Action will also be taken to boost community transport, tackle loneliness and social isolation and to create Wychavon's first health and wellbeing hub.
There is a pledge to deliver 1,000 affordable new homes by 2024 and an extra £12,500 a year for three years for Citizens Advice South Worcestershire.
Cllr Bradley Thomas, Leader of Wychavon District Council, said: "This is a bold plan that will protect and enhance our environment, continue to grow our economy and invest in the things that matter most to our communities.
"Thanks to our successful Grow, Save, Charge plan we are able to do all this while freezing our share of the Council Tax bill to help our hard-pressed residents keep more of their money in their pocket to spend with local businesses."
The Executive Board's strategy and budget proposals still need to be considered and approved by Full Council on Wednesday, 19 February.
