Build Forward Better: our medium-term plan for 2021-22 and 2022-23
The pandemic has had a profound impact on all of our finances including the council’s. This year alone it has cost the council £60m and with the health emergency still not over, the costs are expected to rise even higher.
Despite the challenge, by law the council must set a balanced budget for 2021-22. We must also continue to provide vital frontline services like bin collections and social care.
We need to save £40m over the next two years. This is on top of the £305m we have had to save since 2010.
We continue to face some difficult decisions and want to thank everyone who participated in the consultation and helped shape these updated plans.
