Budgets and spending

We approved our budget for 2015/2016 at the council meeting dated 4 February 2015.


For 2015/2016 the council has a net budget requirement of £491.9m, using these funds we will provide approximately 770,000 residents with essential local services.

Tax increase below inflation

We are raising our share of council tax by 1.98 percent to help deal with the £157m funding shortfall.

We have done our best to keep the increase just below the rate of inflation.

We plan to make £48m of efficiency savings in 2015/2016.

For 2015/2016 we have set a council tax rise of 1.98 percent.
