Council Budget 2015/2016 – Every year Herefordshire Council has a legal obligation to set a balanced budget, the 2015/2016 budget being presented to Council this Friday 6th February 2015 and also includes the setting of the council tax.
Higher than a 1.9 per cent council tax rise, would trigger a public referendum which would incur a significant cost to the council.
All local authorities are reducing services as the Government continues to substantially reduce the funding it provides to local government. Consequently, Herefordshire Council has to save £33 million up to 2016/2017.
In addition the demand for services has grown and the Council has had to provide care for more people, particularly in essential areas such as children’s safeguarding and adult social care.
The Council has consistently argued that the costs associated with delivering services in rural areas are not adequately funded through the current national formula. Herefordshire is the most sparsely populated county in England with residents dispersed across its 842 square miles.
