Full Council is required to approve an annual budget and Council Tax by 11 March each year.
The budget is the Council's plan which specifies how resources are to be spent during the financial year to help it deliver its services. Before Full Council approved the budget, consultation took place with the local electorate including local business in January and February 2018 to ensure that the Council focused its spending on key areas affecting local people.
The Budget Report 43/2018 considered by Cabinet on 20 February 2018 was prepared using the provisional local government finance settlement information issued in December.
Full Council approved the budget on 26 February 2018. Below are links to key documents considered as part of the budget.
