2022/23 Budget

Every year, the Council prepares its proposed budget for the forthcoming financial year. We are interested in your views on our plans for next year's budgets. Have your say.

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.

Our plans for 2022/23 include:

-       Continuing the freeze of our share of Council Tax for the thirteenth year running

-       Investing £11.6 million in projects to support the regeneration of Coalville

-       Keeping free garden waste collections for a single bin, but introducing a new charge of £45 a year for each additional bin.

To give us your views on these budgets, please complete the survey by 30 January 2022.

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. 

Our plans for 2022/23 include:

-       Increasing rents by up to 4.1% from April 2022

-       Investing £20.5 million over 5 years to reduce the carbon footprint of our council homes

-       Spending £4.5 million in 2022-23 on improving council properties

You can send us your comments on the survey by 30 January 2022.
