Council Budget 2020-21 allocated to challenges

This plan has been developed alongside the Council's budget for the next four years. We have mapped the Council’s 2020-21 budgets against our priorities to provide a transparent overview of the resources we currently have available and how we are planning to distribute them.

As a result of the considerable uncertainty regarding funding for 2021-24, budget plans for this period will continue to be developed to bridge the estimated budget gap of between £22m and £31m and to align to the Council Plan.
