About Plymouth City Council


We are the local authority for Plymouth, providing services and information to many of the area’s 262,700 residents as well as businesses and visitors.

We are one of the largest employers in Plymouth, employing over 2,500 employees, covering a wide range of occupations from health consultant, park ranger, children’s social worker, refuse driver, registrar, housing delivery officer and customer support assistant.

Local people are at the heart of our proposed Corporate Plan. The new plan places priority on delivering consistent, high quality frontline services while reducing inequality to deliver a fairer city that everyone can be proud of.

Council Leader Tudor Evans

 “We are on a mission to make Plymouth a fairer city where everyone can make a positive contribution. That is all about having a city where services are good and people feel the benefits of a growing economy. We want Plymouth to be a vibrant, exciting, welcoming place to be for all our citizens, visitors and businesses. A place to be proud of.

Our values are really important because they are at the core of what public service is all about.  We are a democratically led organisation which takes responsibility for our actions. We will be honest and open with people treating them with respect and championing fairness and opportunity. And we are determined to work co-operatively with our partners to do the best we can for our city and communities.”

Chief Executive Tracey Lee

“We are absolutely committed to listening to our customers and communities and providing quality public services. That means spending people’s money wisely and making sure we have a well-motivated, skilled workforce as well as working with our councillors and partners in the city to ensure that the voice of the city is heard at a regional and national level.”
