2012-13 Analysis of External Drivers (PESTLE)
The Analysis of External Drivers is a document published on an annual basis by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and updated throughout the year. The document provides a comprehensive and forward-looking assessment of the political, economic, socio-cultural, technical, legal and environmental/ethical drivers that will both impact upon and shape service delivery over the next twelve months. In 2010, the Service published a substantial analysis that looked forward, over the medium term, to 2015. This tied-in with the economic and political programme of the Coalition Government, which was formed after the General Election in May 2010 and has supported the development of the Fire Authority‟s Four Year Strategy and the annual action plans – the Integrated Risk Management Plans for 2010-11 (IRMP8) and 2011-12 (IRMP9). This updated document seeks to build upon previous analyses and outline how and where the external context has changed. As will be explained later in the main body of the analysis this is particularly relevant to the field of local government, which continues to go through a period of significant change. This includes the introduction of overarching policies such as the embedding of the localism agenda, the diversification of public service provision and, specifically for fire and rescue

services, the development of a new national framework. Going forward, Fire Authorities and other local government bodies will need to contend with significant change to the way in which local government is funded as well as adapt to a continuing programme of austerity. In analysing these external influences, the PESTLE should help to shape both the proposals being developed by the Authority for inclusion in IRMP10 and also enable agreed projects to be implemented effectively; having regard to relevant local and national issues. The Analysis of External Drivers is a tool that has been used by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service for a number of years, developed by a small in-house team, to drive policy and aid implementation. The analysis is now available for other services to purchase in a localised format. At the time of writing, much of the data from the 2011 census has not yet become available, though a small number of key datasets have been released and are included where relevant. Other datasets are scheduled to be released over this summer and will be factored into the refresh of the PESTLE analysis that will take place later this year.
