2019 budget consultation
- Period: 07 January 2019 - 18 February 2019
- Status: Open
- Audiences: Everyone
- Topics: Budgets
- Type: Public
We've delivered savings of over £48m in the last three years to address reducing government funding for services, and an increase in core service costs such as adult social care and children’s social care. Whilst this has enabled us to deliver balanced budgets each year, further work is still needed to deliver more savings as government grants continue to reduce in future years.
Further cuts on existing budget areas are becoming more and more difficult, so we're looking at other ways to deliver a more sustainable funding position, including bringing in income.
We'd like council taxpayers' views on proposals being taken forward for the 2019/20 financial year, but first, before we dive into the detail, it's important that everyone understands some background information on the council’s financial position.
