THE ECONOMY, sustainability and residents’ welfare are the priorities of Warwickshire County Council (WCC).
The council has published its new plan, explaining what it hopes to achieve within the next five years.
It sets out three priority areas, focused on the economy; ensuring people can live safely, healthily, and happily; and creating a county with a sustainable future.
Council leader Coun Izzi Seccombe said: “Our Council Plan is about Warwickshire stepping forward. Stepping forward to meet challenges, stepping forward to embrace opportunity and stepping forward to deliver our ambition for the future of Warwickshire.
“As an organisation we understand the challenges that face us all. The collective challenge of climate change in which we all play a role; but also the pressures around cost-of-living increases and rising energy costs.
“Our new Council Plan looks to address these challenges, so that we can work towards a better long-term future as we move on to live safely with Covid after an extraordinarily tough two years.”
Coun Seccombe said while the plan covers the next five years, the focus is to ensure the county is the best it can be now and for future generations.
She added: “The Plan has at its core a commitment to empowering communities. Throughout the pandemic we have seen how people have supported one another. We want to maintain and build on that momentum and ensure we invest in our social and community infrastructure. ”
