Budgets for 2010-2015

Reference No: 072/2015
Request Date: 28/06/2015


I'd like to know in a non technical language about the budgets for each year 2010-2015 inc showing source of income such as Government, Local Authority, County Council etc. I am particularly interested to know of any reductions made in these income streams and when they will be effective e.g. cuts in 2012 budget means that cuts will/may be required in year xx spend and what the effects were or are likely to be.

Further, can you provide estimates for the next 5 years on likely funding streams and note any reductions along with likely impacts.


The budget values and funding analysis is set out below from the start of the CSR (Comprehensive Spending Review):

Budget in £000 2011/12 2012/13 2013/14 2014/15 2015/16
Precepts (council tax) 24,409 24,512 21,442 21,798 22,825
Revenue support grant (Central Government) 18,540 18,900 21,033 19,704 18,202
  42,949 43,412 42,475 41,502 41,027

With reference to the reductions we have faced and continue to face:

  • During the CSR (upto 2014/15) the Authority encountered a reduction in government funding of £4m
  • in 2015/16 we have encountered a reduction of £1.7m

We predict based on the information available to us that from 2016/17 to 2019/20 we will experience a further £4m reduction
