Introducing our plan
Welcome to Warwickshire County Council's corporate plan. The One Organisational Plan 2017-20 describes how we will rise to the challenge of making Warwickshire the best it can be.
The journey over the last three years has been challenging - we have delivered the £92 million pounds of savings demanded of us to balance our budgets and we are now faced with making further savings of £67 million.
This means shaping the future of a very different County Council and different public service provision in Warwickshire by 2020. The reduction in resources does not diminish our ambition for the County. We are clear about our priorities - Firstly, we want Warwickshire’s communities and individuals to be supported so they are safe, healthy and independent with priority focussed on the most vulnerable. Secondly, we want Warwickshire’s economy to be vibrant and supported by the right jobs, training, skills and infrastructure. We will seek to build our economy by attracting more investment, maximising business opportunities and encouraging job creation.
To achieve this we need to ensure our services are more efficient, integrated and that we make best possible use of new technologies and innovation. This means better access and information.
We cannot do this alone and we are continuing to look to our residents and partners in the public, private and voluntary communities to open up a new conversation with us to find solutions and different ways of working.
This plan sets out the journey we face - and begins to describe how we can work together to make Warwickshire the best it can be for everyone.
