County Council Meeting – Thursday, 21st March 2013

Councillors will have plenty to talk about at Council on 21st March.

Councillors will have plenty to talk about at the Council meeting on 21st March.

On Thursday, 21st March we’ve got a County Council meeting, which will be held at Shire Hall, Warwick from 10am.  This will be the last full Council meeting of our Council’s four-year term, ahead of the elections in May (more on this soon).

We’ve got a pretty full agenda for the meeting. Amongst other things, we’ll be talking through the following:

  • Councillors will be looking at a report on the Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, including some of the risks and challenges it will face in the coming years, and some of the work the Service will be doing to overcome these challenges
  • Councillors will be setting up the Warwickshire Health and Wellbeing Board, which comes about as a result of central government changes to the NHS, which will take effect on 1st April this year
  • Three of our Cabinet Members (who have special responsibility for certain council services) will be updating everyone on the key issues within their portfolios:

Councillor Richard Hobbs will talk through Community Safety issues,

Councillor Heather Timms will focus on Children and Schools

And Councillor Izzi Seccombe will talk through some of the changes in Adult Social Care

You can find the agenda for the meeting and all of the supporting documents on the County Council website.

As with all of the big meetings here at Shire Hall, full Council is open to the public, and we’d encourage residents to attend.
