Each year, we are required to set a balanced budget.  After taking account of funding from government, economic forecasts, inflation, income and other budget issues and priorities, we were required to make £6m of expenditure reduction measures. Services across the Council have identified ways to make the efficiency savings required, through internal management actions that minimise any impact on frontline services, while ensuring investment in priorities.

In all of our budget preparations, we have been working to ensure that our services are financially sustainable into the future and that we continue to use our resources wisely.

This year, we have made further efficiency savings through internal management actions that do not affect frontline services.

The process of service redesign will continue, so that wherever possible, we are able to reduce costs and maintain services by becoming more efficient and by doing things differently.
