Medway council aims to provide high-quality and value for money services for its residents.

Managing finances well is essential to achieving this, as well as ensuring that council tax levels remain among the lowest in the country.

To maintain value for money the council:

  • attracts external funding
  • monitors finances and moves resources into high priority areas as part of the budget process
  • is involved in partnership working with other public services
  • reduces costs where possible
  • improves procurement
  • sells its own services externally where appropriate.

Medway Council publishes details of all spending over £250.
