Budget book

Every financial year we must publish a budget book which sets out how we plan to spend our money in the coming year across all services.

The Spring Budget 2017 announced an additional £2 billion for councils to spend on adult social care over the next three years.  All councils were asked to certify that they will use the 2017/18 additional funding for Adult Social Care and complete a pro-forma. Detail on the additional funding for adult social care [PDF] is now available.
