The recently approved Council Plan (September 2022), established the strategic framework for service delivery over the next five years and how that will be done. The plan recognised that tough decisions will need to be made to allow us to focus limited resources on services that support those most in need, create brighter futures for children and young people, drive economic recovery and a green transition, and help create jobs.

The Financial Strategy identified that the Council has a projected funding gap to 2026/27 of £69m, and provides an outline of the activities required to identify future options to reduce this funding deficit. These activities include transformation, improvement, service reductions, Council tax strategies, service concessions and borrowing requirements.

The Strategic Property Review forms part of the wider approach to supporting service transformation, modernisation and cost reduction.

The reports refer to Equality and Poverty Impact Assessments (EPIAs) which have been carried out for the proposals which are available below.
