Budget Consultation 2016-2017

We want to hear your views on the forthcoming year's budget.

The reductions in financial support from central government means that the council faces many challenges in being able to provide ongoing quality services; these include growth pressures and reductions in financing streams.

The council has a 5 year financial projection of its budget for the provision of services and the estimate of future funding from central government. The projection is that demand for services is likely to grow, whilst the economic position means that the funding provided to the council is expected to fall. The projection is that the council will need to find a further £3m of savings by 2019/20.

To help us plan for the future, we would like your views and suggestions on the next year's budget.
