Following consideration of the Medium Term Financial Strategy, a financial strategy is agreed and specific proposals developed for consultation with all stakeholders and review in January before the Council agrees its revenue budget and capital programme in February of each year. This states the intentions of the Council in financial terms for the next and subsequent financial years.
The Budget Report provides a detailed summary of the revenue income that the Council expects to receive during the year both from Central Government, local taxpayers and other sources, together with a breakdown of estimated revenue expenditure.
The Budget Report also includes the Council's proposed council tax levels for the coming financial year, its prudential and treasury indicators, and the Council's Minimum Revenue Provision Statement.
