Have your say on budget proposals

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


This consultation ran until 20 January, 2019 and has now closed

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.
