Council budgets and spending

Our budget and finances 2016/17

This year the council has £311m to deliver services. Council tax has not increased, but in order to balance our budget, the council has had to make difficult decisions about spending.

Find out more about the council's budget and how your money is being spent.

Government grant will fund 68 per cent of the council's budget this year, the remaining 32 per cent coming from council tax. Read where our resources come from.
