About council finances

We aim to provide high-quality and value for money services for our residents.

To achieve this, managing finances well is essential as well as ensuring that council tax levels remain among the lowest in the country.

To maintain value for money we:

  • attract external funding
  • monitor finances and moves resources into high priority areas as part of the budget process
  • are involved in partnership working with other public services
  • reduce costs where possible
  • improve procurement
  • sell our own services externally where appropriate

We also publish details of all spending over £250.

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties and Public Authorities) Regulations 2017 requires all employers with more than 250 employees to report annually on their gender pay gap.
