We need your help to set our Budget for 2021-22.

The Council’s Cabinet has outlined the following plan to tackle the projected funding gap:

1). It is proposed that individual service budgets are flat-lined for 2021-22.

Individual services are things like schools, education, social services, environmental services, highways and central support services.

This means that individual services would not receive any increase in their net expenditure budgets for 2021-22.

All inflationary, demand, demographic and legislative pressures for 2021-22 would have to be contained by the individual services through cost reductions and / or efficiency savings.

2). Increased funding of £10m for 2021-22 (includes income from a 5% Council Tax increase) mean that a number of services can be given additional funding to offset these inflationary, demographic and legislative pressures and / or to tackle particular issues they are facing.

£1.3m of the £10m has to be allocated to specific budget pressures but we would like you to allocate the remaining £8.7m to those services you feel need it most.Please use the budget slider for this

3). It is proposed that Council Tax is increased to help meet the cost of proposals to offset inflationary, demand, demographic and legislative pressures and / or to tackle particular issues faced by services.
