Budgets and finance
Demand for council services is going up at the same time as the budget we have to provide them gets tighter every year. These financial challenges mean we are constantly striving to work differently; to be more efficient and effective.
Budget planning is an ongoing process and council services identify savings all year round. Decisions taken by councillors as part of previous budgets could also have a delayed impact on policies, services and savings.
Councillors agreed the budget for 2019-20 on 21 February 2019.
