|Craigavon Borough Council |
Our Vision is to "serve and lead people in Craigavon," to continuously improve and develop our services and our leadership so that by working together we improve our quality of life, develop pride in our community and shape our future.
The Council spends £21 million providing a wide range of quality services to the 86,000 people living in the area - evidence in itself that the Council is involved in many aspects of the Borough.
The Council provides over 80 services to the local population. Key services include refuse collection and disposal, street cleansing, community development, economic development, environmental health, leisure services, parks provision, arts, tourism development and sports development.
District Councils, through their Building Control Departments, have a statutory building control duty to apply building regulations. These regulations make sure of the safety and health of people in and around buildings. They also protect the environment by stating that buildings must be thermally efficient, energy-efficient and reduce pollution which damages the atmosphere.
We work in partnership with local stakeholders including communities, businesses, social partners and statutory agencies to encourage investment, support local enterprise and facilitate active participation in community life.
Our activities include:
- Promoting good relations
- Enhancing community safety
- Facilitating community development
- Supporting Neighbourhood Renewal Partnerships
- Providing community facilities
- Supporting industries & businesses of the Borough
- Developing the tourism potential of the Borough
- Facilitating urban regeneration & development
- Implementing the NI Rural Development Programme
