Budget consultation 2016/17

Budget approved

The County Council's final budget proposals for 2016/17 were approved at the Full Council meeting on 25 February 2016.

The financial situation

The financial challenge facing Nottinghamshire County Council is significant and some difficult decisions will be needed to help us balance the budget.

Over the next three years the Council is facing a budget shortfall of £62m. Put simply our income has fallen, whilst demand for our vital services that protect some of our most vulnerable has gone up.

We have already delivered some significant savings which makes the task facing us even more difficult. The reality is that we will not be able to provide all of the services, or the same levels of service, that we have done in the past.

Council Tax

Due to the current financial position, the Council is proposing to increase Council Tax next year by 1.99% as indicated in the Budget Report 2015. This will help to limit the reductions in services that are necessary in order to deliver a balanced budget.
