Budget Consultation 2021-22

Closed 28 Dec 2020

Opened 16 Nov 2020


Every February, the council sets a budget for the next year which details how much money we will be able to spend on each of the services the council provides.

We are consulting on options for the level of Council Tax increase next year (from April 2021-March 2022) to help cover some of the existing and emerging financial pressures the council faces in delivering services.

The options range from making no change to a 2% increase in the amount you pay for general council services plus a further option to add up to 3% more towards the cost of adult social care. (This extra amount for adult social care is referred to by the government as an Adult Social Care Precept).

We want your views on the level of increase we should apply next year.

You can request alternative formats of this consultation by contacting the Consultation and Engagement Team on consultation@bristol.gov.uk or by calling 0117 922 2848.
