Budget 2017-2018


Over the next few months the council will be preparing the 2017/18 budget.

Around £48m of savings have already been made in the last five years, but we anticipate still needing to make considerable savings in 2017/18 and beyond.

Our budget presentation provides more information on how the council spends its money and the challenges being faced. 

On 21 December, Cabinet will review a number of budget proposals that will then go out for public consultation over four weeks.

Have your say

21 December 2016 - 20 January 2017

We want to hear from you about the things that are most important to your wellbeing now and in the future and how you think we could do things better and save money.

Responses to the consultation will be considered at the February Cabinet meeting before a draft budget is recommended and put before full Council.
