Budget Consultation 2018/19

South Norfolk Council is setting its budget for 2018/19 and we value your views on our priorities.

The main sources of income for Local Authorities, including South Norfolk Council, come from central government funding, council tax, business rates and the income from chargeable services.

With reducing funding from central government and based on current projections, the Council will need to find an extra £2.6 million in additional income or savings by 2022/23 to deliver a balanced budget.

Our finances are finely balanced and a 1% increase in Council Tax contributes just £66,000 towards an expenditure budget of £29.4 million, which covers 86 different services including housing, benefits administration, homelessness prevention, Early Help, leisure, planning and many more.
