Council Plan 2011 - 2014 - Welcome

If you don't know where you are going any road will get you there!

Faced with unprecedented cuts in funding but increased and increasing demand for services, we have had to take a long, hard look at what the county council currently does and what it should be doing in the future.

That, in turn, has led to determining our priorities and the planning to achieve those priorities...and that is what this council plan is all about.

I suspect the plan may not please everyone but we have listened to what you told us during the consultation on our priorities and the budget, and this in turn has shaped the final council plan and budget. However, we cannot do everything we would wish, but revitalising the Cumbrian economy, and caring for people less fortunate, must rank high in our list of priorities.

Our commitment to the customer and doing things in the most efficient way might mean that you find services are delivered in new innovative ways, which in many cases have been designed with the people who use those services.

We are re-engineering council services to ensure that we are delivering services in the most efficient and effective ways.

Eddie Martin, Leader of the Council
