The council faces a number of challenges to deliver services in a rural county with an above average number of older people who will require more support. Reductions in funding from central government requires the council to transform the way it delivers its services. This will require new ways of working and increased co-operation with our partners, voluntary sectors, businesses and communities.

Our focus is to be an innovative and resourceful Council; being as efficient as we can be and identifying and pursuing opportunities to generate income which can be invested into services.
