Council budget

The Council’s budget proposals for 2020/21 were considered at the Council’s Executive meeting on Tuesday 5 January 2021.

We have decided to consult on a proposed general council tax increase of 1.99% for 2021/22.

Have your say on the proposals before the final budget is set in February.


The budget results from policy planning work carried out by executive councillors and service directors.

Our annual Budget Book details:

  • our revenue budget
  • the nature of our expenditure and income
  • our medium-term financial strategy
  • our capital programme
  • our treasury management strategy

It also breaks down the budget by service portfolio.
