Budget 2017-2018


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

Cabinet will consider final budget proposals on Monday 20 February 2017

Although around £48m of savings have already been made in the last five years, 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 2016, Cabinet reviewed a number of budget proposals that then went out for public consultation over four weeks.

Have your say

21 December 2016 - 20 January 2017

Residents were asked to share their thoughts 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.

The consultation has now closed.

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