The Government has made cutting the national debt a priority, signalling a reduction in public sector spending. This means all councils, including ourselves, will have to significantly reduce costs while protecting frontline services as far as possible.
A large part of the council's budget comes through a range of grants from the Government. We expect this funding to be significantly reduced when the public spending review concludes in October 2010.
To help you with this we have information on how our current budget is spent and the services we provide.
