About Warwickshire County Council

Warwickshire County Council is at the heart of everything that takes place in and around Warwickshire. Like all public sector organisations, we face challenges and are tackling these with our innovative programme of transformation.

Warwickshire County Council has developed its current operating model organically over many years. Service delivery is stable and services have successfully delivered savings. Frontline services have sought to deal with increasing levels of need by building community resilience and establishing self-supporting communities over a number of years.

The increasing demand on our services is well evidenced. Warwickshire’s population has increased by 5% in the past decade with a further 5% increase projected over the next ten years. This, combined with changes in how Local Government is financed, creates a revenue gap that we are responding to.

The current Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) takes us to 2020, which is why a new plan and operating model is necessary, so we can address the challenges we know are coming our way.

Our new operating model has been designed following assessment of key areas across the organisation: it is underpinned by our design principles which set out what we do, how we do things and how we will work.

Our new model will enable us to deliver our two corporate outcomes to be successfully delivered and will focus the whole organisation in a single strategic direction.  It will address the projected growth in demand resulting in needs-focused, efficient and integrated service delivery.  

We are creating a fantastic and sustainable county council which will serve our residents and businesses well in the future.
