About the Consultation

Like other Councils in Wales, Pembrokeshire County Council faces continued budget pressures and we will need to make budget savings. The funding gap for 2024-25 is estimated to be £27.1 million, with potential for it to increase further. This figure is based on the assumption that we receive a 3.1% increase in our settlement from Welsh Government.

Over the past decade, we have successfully made significant budget savings of £96.7 million, supported by your savings suggestions. Understanding what services are important to you will help us make the difficult choices to set the Council budget for 2024–25 and beyond,

We have developed a Budget Modelling Tool and this is available here Budget Options .gov.uk (opens in a new tab).

For information on how to use the budget modeller please download the “Budget Modeller User Information 2024-25” document under the Consultation Documents section.
