Cheshire East Budget Report 2010/2011 - Shaping Our Services
Cheshire East Council approved its Budget for 2010/2011 on 25th February 2010.
The result is a Budget of £240.1m and a Band D Council Tax of £1,216.34. This represents a 1.7% increase over last year with part of this additional income being used to help transform services to children.
Budget setting was managed through the Council’s Business Planning Process.
This considered financial pressures ranging from inflationary increases in the costs of services to falling income from the impact of recession. It then looked at organisational and service priorities to allocate vital resources. The final Budget package represents the results of eight months work by elected members and officers.
In January 2010 the Council undertook a series of stakeholder consultation events based on the Pre Budget Report.
Feedback from those events was reported to Council and has influenced the format and proposals in the final report.
The Budget Report approved by Council is now available for download using the links below.
A PDF version of the Budget Book is available for download. Further work is ongoing in some areas to fully breakdown the high level service budgets to cost centre level and across detailed subjective budget headings for expenditure and income types. Further pages will be added to this document as and when more detailed information becomes available.
The Council will soon begin work on the next Budget setting process. Comments on the Authority’s Budget proposals or process can continue to be sent to Shapingourservices@cheshireeast.gov.uk.
