Budget 2022: A clean, green, and inclusive city for all

Budget 2022: A clean, green, and inclusive city for all

Our medium-term financial planning for 2022-23 to 2024-25

We have faced significant pressures on our annual budgets for more than a decade, resulting in a requirement to make £335 million of savings since 2010.

Over the next 12 months and beyond, we will need to make further savings to maintain a balanced budget, which we are legally required to achieve.

To set a balanced budget for 2022-23, we need to save £12 million from our services, while maintaining the essential services that our communities rely on. This is expected to be followed by further savings of £12 million in 2023-24 and another £12 million in 2024-25 – a total of £36 million over the next three years.

The documents below set out our draft medium-term financial planning to tackle this ongoing financial challenge. We have set out detailed proposals for 2022-23 and our proposed approach in 2023-24 and 2024-25.

The views of residents, businesses, voluntary sector and partners about our proposals are essential as they impact upon everyone in the city. We want to hear your feedback and encourage everyone to have their say (details on how to are below).
