Shaping our future together: our medium-term plan 2019-20 to 2021-22 (1)

Newcastle has faced cuts that are unfair and disproportionate, more than twice the national average since 2010. By 2019-20 we will be in the ninth year of austerity. Over the period to 2022, we will have had to save a staggering £327 million due to government cuts and increasing cost pressures.

Over the next three years, we need to save £60 million. The funding gap in 2019-20 is £20 million, assuming the proposed increase in Council Tax the funding gap falls to £16.9 million.

Shaping our future together: our medium term plan 2019-20 to 2021-22 sets out how we are dealing with the continued public sector austerity whilst delivering our bold ambitions for the city. It outlines the steps we proposed to take to over the next three years.

Consultation on the budget is now closed.
