Changes in our net expenditure

Despite the challenges as a result of the pandemic, the Council has been able to agree a budget without having to cut frontline services.  This has been achieved through better procurement, improved recruitment processes, collaboration with other councils and organisations, and better management of our property holdings. It has also been possible to continue to freeze car parking charges at 2014 levels. In addition, the Council has been able to increase resources to improve services in areas such as enforcement & compliance, planning, asset management, procurement and democratic processes.
