Summary of revenue budget estimates and capital expenditure plans
Funding is provided directly by the Government as Revenue Support Grant and Business Rates. The remainder is raised via the precept which forms part of the council tax bills issued by the District Councils. The Authority only sets its budget after taking account of the Government’s regulations on capping, the reserves it has available and any income that it generates.
For 2020/21 the Authority has a budget of £54.8m agreed at the 10 February 2020 meeting, including a Council Tax increase of 1.99% for 2020/21.
The budget was set against a total funding allocation of £55.3m – a balanced budget position with a budget surplus of £0.5m.
The Authority agreed to retain a minimum general Reserve of £5m (including operational contingency).
