This section sets out our long-term business plan for 2016-19, and our strategic priorities for this four-year period. It includes our specific business priorities for 2015-16, and it is updated annually to ensure that we are open and transparent in our plans, our progress, and most importantly how we are spending public money.

Our priorities for 2013-14, and our performance against them, may be found in our most recent annual report and accounts.
