With increasing demand on services and reduced funding from the Government the council is proposing to (subject to approval):
- continue to find ways to reduce spending by £14.8million through a range of saving measures, and
- increase council tax by 1% to contribute towards funding services, that’s 29p extra a week for an average (Band D) property
Taken together these measures would allow the council to cover the gap in funding it faces and provide the services we need.
