Reductions in Government support

Two charts showing reduction in government support during the last 10 years and the reduction in budget during the same time period

Through sensible financial management we have responded well to issues facing local government during the last 10 years, which has been one of the most challenging financial periods in history. The Government has reduced the amount it grants the Council from £6.2m in 2009/10 to £2.5m in 2020/21. In fact, the Council no longer receives any revenue support grant from Central Government.  The Council has reduced the budget it needs from £11.8m in 2009/10 to £9.6m in 2020/21.
