Newcastle 2020: Investing in a fairer future – One year on
Last year we published a three-year plan which set out the steps we need to take to bridge the funding gap created by continued government cuts and uncontrollable cost pressures for 2017-18 to 2019-20.
We will have to save £13.3 million in 2018-19 in order to set a balanced budget. This means our city will have lost £282 million by 2020.
This year’s proposals are largely a continuation of the detail published last year, delivering year two of our three-year plan. They demonstrate how we are dealing with continued public sector austerity whilst delivering bold ambitions for the city, in cooperation with communities and partner organisations.
