Working in Doncaster
This is a truly exciting time to work and live in Doncaster.
We are realising massive investment and job creation in the borough, which continues to increase on an annual basis.
Over £1billion has been invested into Doncaster since the millennium, funding exciting developments including the international airport, the Frenchgate transport interchange and retail complex, a new Community Sports Complex, a revamped racecourse, new performance venue and cultural quarter inc. the Council's new state-of-the-art Civic Office.
If we are to capitalise on this economic regeneration it is vital to make sure that the social and environmental benefits are maximised. That's why we need to make sure our schools and academies get even better, our streets are safer and cleaner and that we invest in public services for our children and most vulnerable people. In doing so we will ensure that all our residents and businesses are provided with the highest quality services and access to the undoubted opportunities that are being created across Doncaster.
In order to achieve this we need to attract and retain a growing population with world-class skills, both in public services and growth industries that drive the regional economy.
Doncaster's elected Mayor leads Council staff in serving around 140,000 households, setting policy and priorities, championing the regeneration of Doncaster but also ensuring that the Council is delivering quality services that meet local needs.
Local services and the way the Council delivers its services are the main focus of any local authority. The Council's teams provide a range of services delivered at a local level, so that local solutions are applied to local problems.
The Mayoral consultation system allows local people to have a far greater direct impact on the formulation of policy, addressing issues such as economic regeneration and special education needs.
