Council budgets and spending

The Budget

The Council has a statutory responsibility to set a balanced budget for each financial year. Broadly this means that the Council’s expenditure on services must be contained with the available funding envelope.

The Council’s annual budget for the 2016/17 financial year is set within the context of the 2015 Spending Review and Autumn Statement. This sets out the government’s economic forecasts and spending plans for 2016/17 to 2020/21 along with the action required to achieve a public spending surplus in 2019/20.

The Budget 2016/17 - Revenue and Capital report was approved by Council on 2 March 2016.

The approved budget for 2016/17 covers the financial period 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017 and is noted below:

  • The total planned revenue expenditure is £15,509K including net parish precepts of £1,797K.
  • The total planned capital expenditure is £3,265K.

More detail is available within the report and appendices and a copy of this report is available here.
