About the corporate plan

The corporate plan sets out our key objectives and priorities for action until 2019/20. It also sets out the values that guide the council’s work.

The county council delivers 80% of local government services in the county. In working to deliver these services we have in mind our ambition for a county where local residents and businesses can flourish.

To us this means having:

  • a strong and thriving economy - with small businesses starting, existing small businesses growing and large businesses choosing to locate here, creating good jobs for local people.
  • protection for vulnerable people – where we support and safeguard some of the county’s most vulnerable residents, focusing on those we have a duty to consider, such as older people, disabled adults, and children. We must ensure these residents are aware of, and can easily access, the services and care to which they are entitled.
  • efficient public services – we will modernise the way the council runs and provide services alongside working effectively with our local partners to ensure that residents receive joined up and value for money services.

We will publish our new corporate plan for 2018/19 and beyond in February 2018. It will explain in more detail how we will work with partners and communities to achieve our vision of thriving communities for everyone in Oxfordshire.

Financial challenge

We now expect that we will need to save up to £72 million more in the four years between 2016/17 and 2019/20.

We must:

  • prioritise work we are required to do by legislation, regulation or policy
  • focus on prevention and early intervention
  • provide a vital safety net for this most vulnerable people in our communities that we have a duty to support.
