The Council’s Business Plan is refreshed every year and formally approved by Full Council each February.
The current Business Plan (which covers the 5 year period April 2019 to March 2024) was approved at Council in February 2019.
We are currently consulting on some aspects of the plan.

Cambridgeshire County Council is interested in gathering residents’ views about their local community, council services and proposed changes to council tax. Your views will help us better understand what is important to you and what we should take into consideration when setting council tax rates.
Why are we asking for your views?
We want to know from you more about how the County Council can come together with communities to support people to live healthy, independent lives.
As the fastest growing county in the UK demand for council services is growing and we are having to continually adapt what we do.
More people need improved roads and public transport services, new schools (or increased places in them), opportunities for lifelong learning; increasing amounts of waste needs to be dealt with, more need to register births or deaths or get married; more children need help to stay safe or live fulfilling lives, and as people age they need support to remain independent and have the support they need.
As a Council we continually look to transform what we do and be innovative to meet this growing demand. We also want to support places in most need and improve people’s lives; making sure people get the services they need as close to home as possible.
What we do know is that government funding for Council’s is reducing and Cambridgeshire doesn’t currently get a fair funding deal from Government –this is the message we are giving the county’s MPs so they can take our concerns to Government through our FairDeal4Cambridgeshire Campaign.
