Budget Consultation 2020/21

Closed 4 Dec 2019

Opened 23 Oct 2019


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 2020-March 2021) 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 2% 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.
