Council finances and budget communications campaign

Closed 26 Oct 2023

Opened 14 Sep 2023


The Council, like our residents, is facing increased costs of goods and services plus we continue to experience rising  demand  for vital services for some of our more vulnerable  residents. These pressures taken alongside real term funding reductions of over 40% since 2010 place immense strain on Council resources. 

To address these financial challenges, the Council must make significant savings now and over the next few years to ensure we can continue to deliver key services and support those who need us most. 

We would like those who live and work in the borough to tell us what they currently know about the Council’s budget so we can keep you better informed about how the council works; how services are funded; and how and why we prioritise where our money is spent.
