We are BCP Council

We are an ambitious and forward-thinking council, supporting and working with vibrant and diverse communities. We are the custodians of a globally recognised coastline of opportunity, where people love to live, learn, work, explore, invest, relax and play.

We employ more than 5,000 people and provide services to around 400,000 residents, having the twelfth largest resident population of any council in England. This scale means a higher percentage of our budget can be spent on frontline services.

We support a diverse population covering a broad demographic. There is a large Polish and Jewish community, and a variety of faith groups, as well as an established LGBT community. Over 50% of our population are in work with 25% being retired. You can find out more in our key facts report.

Our vision is to be a place where people, nature, coast and towns come together in sustainable, safe and healthy communities. We will achieve this through our ambitions. For our people and communities, we want to ensure that everyone leads a fulfilled life, maximising opportunity for all. For our place and environment we want them to be vibrant places where people and nature flourish, with a thriving economy in a healthy, natural environment.

Our values

Our values are at the heart of our work. We all have a role to play in contributing to the success of BCP Council and we are committed to making a difference through respect, passion, integrity, innovation and pride. These core values reflect what we consider to be important and are at the heart of the culture we wish to create for BCP Council.

We’re bold, confident about and proud of our organisation, our area, our people and our future. We hope that you are too and that you will consider working with us.
