Draft budget proposals 2018/19

At Cabinet on 19 December, members approved the draft budget for consultation, which includes the proposed increase in Council Tax and a second set of proposals designed to help the council deliver a balanced budget in 2018/19.

Phase 1

The council consulted on a number of proposals as part of the Phase 1 draft budget consultation. This closed on 1 December.

Libraries

The council consulted on three options for the future of the library service. This closed on 13 January 2018. You can find out more about this consultation by visiting the review of library services webpage.

Phase 2

Phase 2 of our draft budget consultation launched on 20 December 2017 and ran until 30 January 2018.

A list of the proposals under consultation during Phase 2 and the proposed fees and charges can be found at the link below. The cabinet paper gives details of the full draft budget and growth and savings proposals, including proposals that were consulted upon during Phase 1.

Equality Impact Assessments have been prepared for those budget proposals that may have an impact on service users and/or the wider community.

When will a decision be made?

Your feedback is really important to us, and all consultation feedback from both phases will be analysed and considered, and will help councillors make a final decision.

An extraordinary council meeting will be held on 28 February to debate and vote on the final budget proposals.

Please see the cabinet papers for details of changes that have been made to the budget proposals following consultation.
