Budget savings proposals to go to Scrutiny Committee

12 January 2024

In a message published last week, Emma Alexander explained that a report was going to Cabinet yesterday (11 January 2024) which included a number of budget savings proposals to support the setting of a balanced budget for 2024 to 2025.

Following discussion at its meeting, Cabinet has referred the budget savings proposals to the Improvement and Scrutiny Committee - Resources, which will consider them when it meets on Monday 22 January 2024.

There are many stages for the proposals to go through and no decisions will be made without the appropriate engagement and consultation being held.

The Improvement and Scrutiny Committee - Resources will provide feedback to Cabinet on the proposals following its meeting on 22 January 2024, with our budget-setting report to be considered by Cabinet at its meeting on Thursday 1 February 2024.

The budget-setting report will then be considered by Full Council when it meets on Wednesday 14 February 2024.

We will continue to keep you informed of the progress of the proposals.
