On 5 December 2018, a report setting out budget proposals for 2019/20-2021/22 was presented to full Council, with the budget for 2019/20 set to be agreed by members in March 2019. Links to this report are set out below.
While the Council has a robust financial strategy, local government is clearly in challenging financial times, and our refreshed Medium-Term Financial Plan identifies that total savings of £22.9m are required for the period 2019 to 2021/22. Assuming full delivery of previously agreed savings totalling £10.9m, we are proposing further savings initiatives, totalling £12m.
Have your say
Before the budget is approved in March, we're asking members of the public to complete a short questionnaire to give their views on the plans.
