Spending plans

Revenue Spending

Revenue spending covers the day-to-day running costs of our services, such as waste collection, planning and leisure. Most of our money goes on our staff or contractors who provide these services for the community and the running costs of buildings, offices, vehicles and other facilities.

In 2020-21 our revenue budget requirement (the amount funded by the Council Tax), excluding Town and Parish Council requirements is £6.4 million.

Medium Term Financial Plan

The Council’s Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) sets out in broad terms the anticipated future spending requirements. This takes account of current and known additional requirements. The quantified additional requirements are based on the planned intentions of the Council and any future impact of decisions already implemented, but cannot be conclusive as other changes will undoubtedly occur over time. The current MTFP (for 2019/20 to 2024/25) is shown in the file below:
