We prepare a detailed budget of the costs of running the Council every year. The budget is very complex; we take into account long term finances, running costs, investments, capital projects and changes to government policy. The budget is an important step in calculating the council tax bills.
The summary budget is a short document showing how the budget affects the council tax charge. It highlights income and expenditure by service area, the source and distribution of funds and the programme of capital investments.
The current budget is for the year ending 31 March 2021. It was agreed by a full meeting of the Council held on 18 February 2020. It includes the Budget Statement which introduces and explains the context for the budget, the Medium Term Financial Strategy which shows financial projections beyond the current budget year and the Savings and Transformation Strategy.
The Capital strategy documents the principles that underpin the Council's longer-term capital expenditure plans and provides context for the programme of investments listed in the budget.
Income from investments provides a significant source of revenue for the Council. The Treasury Management and Investment Strategy statement governs our approach to investments.
