Plymouth City Council’s Annual Report summarises how they have been delivering the priorities for Plymouth over the last year and their plans for the year ahead.
It outlines how they spend their budget and some of the challenges they face in delivering services with less funding from central Government and rising demand for care services.
They are addressing these challenges by changing the way they deliver services and transformation is a key theme that runs throughout the document.

DATA Play 9 kicked off to a great start, once again helped by the great venue provided by the STEM Hub at City College. There was a great buzz in the room and it was great to see lots of new faces getting to know each other and discussing ideas.
We’re excited to be running another DATA Play day on 26 October which will explore how data and technology can help the city’s challenges. This time it’s focused on libraries!
Thank you to everyone who submitted their proposals for Data Play 8. The DATA Play community is really growing and it’s great to see more projects and people linking up.
