On 2 February 2017 Warwickshire County Council agreed a medium term financial plan covering the period 2017-2020. This medium term financial plan will underpin the delivery of our One Organisation Plan 2020 and we will continue to review our medium term revenue position during the course of the plan.
The plan outlines how we will invest in Warwickshire’s future so the economy is vibrant and we can use the proceeds from that to ensure our most vulnerable citizens are safe.
The amount of money we have available to provide services will be in the region of £395 million by 2020. A year by year breakdown is presented in more detail here and includes an annual increase in Council Tax each year of 1.99% plus an extra 2% levy specifically for adult social care.
Council tax remains the biggest source of income and the development of the 2017-2020 Plan continues to provide the opportunity to take a longer term approach to setting the level of council tax.
We have identified that over the three years of the plan we must deliver savings of £67 million. The savings have been identified from all areas of activity and will be delivered in a phased manner over the three years
