  • Valuing the past, caring for the present, embracing the future – We have been shaped by a rich cultural heritage and enthusiastically embrace present challenges and future opportunities.
  • Engaging with the world – We have an outward focus and send quality products and experiences to the world.  We welcome all to share our beautiful City and all it offers.
  • Living lightly by river and sea – We live lightly on our valued natural environment of clean rivers, waterways, beaches; rich agricultural land and coastal landscapes, so future generations can also enjoy this special place.
