The 2002 Vision for Kent identified 8 themes, each covering issues which were important to the quality of life of the people of Kent. Each theme had a series of long term goals and short-term priorities to ensure its Vision Statement was delivered.
The Vision: A Kent where a vibrant and successful economy and targeted regeneration are delivered and sustained by innovative and creative businesses, self-reliant and skills people and support and responsive organisations in private, public and community sectors.
The Vision: A Kent where learning is stimulated and supported for everyone, for life, employment and enjoyment, in ways that are sensitive to individual, family and community needs and aspirations, placing our schools and other centres for learning at the heart of our communities.
The Vision: A Kent where people lead healthier lives, and have choice and control over high quality services that meet their needs for health, care and wellbeing and where people with disabilities are supported to lead independent lives within the community.
The Vision: A Kent where our countryside, coast, natural resources, wildlife and heritage are protected and enhanced for their own sake and for the enjoyment of current and future generations and valued as the key to a high quality of life in both urban and rural areas.
The Vision: A Kent whose communities are stronger and safer and that are confident in the face of social change, supportive in their response to challenges and opportunities and respectful of the differences within and between them.
The Vision: A Kent where residents and visitors can enjoy the recreational, sporting, artistic and cultural opportunities the county has to offer, and where the range and quality of those opportunities is enhanced and made accessible to as broad a cross-section of the community as possible.
The Vision: To provide good accessibility to jobs and services for all sections of the community in Kent and to improve the environment reducing congestion and pollution, widening the choice of transport available, developing public transport, walking and cycling.
The Vision: A Kent where housing needs are met and decent, high quality homes help create attractive, safe and friendly communities clustered around neighbourhood centres, with open spaces and community facilities.
