Have your say on budget proposals

Four-year plan proposes spending £94m more & £74m savings

Residents and businesses are urged to have their say on our latest budget proposals.

You can find send in your views on the 2019-2023 proposals until 20 January, 2019. 

The proposals include £74m, required because rising demand for social care and special educational needs and disability (SEND) support services, combined with inflation, is set to push up costs by £94m.

The savings are made up of £34m of detailed savings, a plan to reduce SEND costs by £20m and a £20m gap.

They also feature a council tax rise of 3.99 per cent - generating £12m next year, to be invested in supporting vulnerable people.
