2021/22 Budget

Every year, the Council prepares its proposed budget for the forthcoming financial year.  You can review the Draft Budget and the specific proposals within our Cabinet reports here:

General Fund & Special Expenses

Our General Fund account is where we fund expenditure for the council’s main services from council tax, business rates and some government grants.  Special Expenses refers to a separate account that covers some council tax income and expenditure for services that the district council provides on behalf of or because there is no parish council in that area. 

You can view the report that details the budgets for both these accounts here - General Fund and Special Expenses Revenue Budget Proposals for 2021/22 (PDF Document, 1.21 Mb).

You can send us your comments on the proposed budget here.

Housing Revenue Account

The Housing Revenue Account (or ‘HRA’) summarises income and expenditure relating to the rented housing accommodation of nearly 4,200 homes provided by the Council.  You can view the report here - Draft Housing Revenue Account Budget Proposals for 2021/22 (PDF Document, 0.62 Mb)
