Overview

Making Warwickshire the best it can be 

 

 

Our county has a great track record of stepping forward to meet big challenges. The last year and a half have been no different. Thousands of people and organisations have worked together to tackle COVID-19, support those most at risk, and look out for each other’s welfare and mental well-being.

Collectively, we have found new ways to solve problems and get things done. There are still big challenges ahead of us: driving economic recovery; getting people back into work; tackling climate change; challenging inequalities; prioritising wellbeing; and keeping our communities healthy, safe and connected.

As we step forward from this extraordinary chapter we are developing a new five year Council Plan and want your views.

Our ambition remains to make Warwickshire the best it can be, now and for future generations. We want Warwickshire to be a brilliant county in which to grow up, work and prosper and grow old. We are proposing three outcomes to achieve our ambitions so that Warwickshire is: 

  1. A county with a vibrant economy and places with the right jobs, skills, and infrastructure. 
  2. A place where people can live their best lives; where communities and individuals are supported to live safely, healthily, happily and independently. 
  3. A place with sustainable futures which means adapting to and mitigating climate change and meeting net zero commitments. 

We know too that resources remain a challenge as we face increasing demand for services, particularly in adult and children’s social care, education and waste management.

Building on the Council’s strong track record of delivering major transformation and over £104m of financial savings since 2014, we need to innovate and improve to deliver value for money and ensure we are a great council and partner. 

In this survey we set out a series of draft objectives for the new Council Plan under our three strategic outcomes. We want you to consider these and tell us which are the most important to you, and your priorities for spending.
