Business Plan 2019 to 2020

The Council’s Business Plan is refreshed every year and formally approved by Full Council each February.

During the period of this plan, Cambridgeshire County Council will face unprecedented financial challenges as the continuing austerity, coupled with significant growth, affect both demand for services and the level of resources the Council has available to fund their provision.

The Council is having to take some very difficult decisions on service levels and quality - decisions that it does not take lightly.

The 2019/2020 Business Plan provides a summary of the County Council's

  • long term vision
  • priorities for 2019/20
  • planned activities across the organisation for the next five years

The Council's vision for Cambridgeshire

The County Council wants to make Cambridgeshire a great place to call home.

Over recent years we have tried to protect frontline services, but inevitably we have had to change the way we do things and reduce some of what we do. In the last three years alone we have budgeted to save over £109m.

This Business Plan sets out how we intend to do the best for the people of Cambridgeshire in the face of these increasingly challenging conditions. Our ambition is for people in Cambridgeshire to live independently and safely within strong and inclusive communities and with networks of support that they can call on.

We will support people when they need our most specialist and intensive services. 

To achieve our vision, we are focusing on the following priority outcomes for the people of Cambridgeshire:

  • A good quality of life for everyone
  • Thriving places for people to live
  • The best start for Cambridgeshire's children

We are ambitious about the way in which we can support and shape the future success of our communities. We want to work with you to achieve our aspirations for our county.
