Shaping NPT – A better life in a better place for a better future

Shaping NPT is Neath Port Talbot Council’s Corporate Plan. It sets out what we are going to do to help the county borough become a better place for people to live, learn and work and bring up their families. A place where everyone has an equal chance to get on in life.

Every day the council delivers hundreds of services to more than 140,000 residents

Here you can read more about the work we are doing to help us improve the well-being of our residents and communities, highlighting some of the services and the support we are providing. We will post updates throughout the year about customers’ and service users’ experiences and post progress reports on how we are doing.


Our priorities for improvement over the next few years are:

To improve the well-being of children and young people

We want all of our children and young people to have the best start in life, so they can be the best they can be

To improve the well-being of all adults who live in the county borough

We want everyone to participate fully in community life – socially and economically

To develop the local economy and environment

We want Neath Port Talbot County Borough to be a vibrant, healthy and safe place to live, work and enjoy recreational time.


How are we doing?

Here you can read about the progress we have made, what is going well and where we are on track, but also about those areas that need more work.
