At ECC we are passionate about better lives for people in Essex. We believe prosperity is the best route to achieve that - so people can help each other, and themselves. We are also ready to step in - to protect vulnerable children, to help care for older people - and to support our economy to flourish.
As a public body it is important we spend taxpayers’ money wisely, on the issues that matter to our residents. To offset reductions in government funding, we must constantly manage demand, reshape and reimagine services and look for opportunities to generate income. It is also important we work tirelessly to secure investment into the county that can help make Essex an even better place to live and work.
Our ambition, between 2017-2021 is for Essex to be the best local authority in the country – because that is what the people of Essex deserve.
