Budget Consultation 2017-18

During December 2016 and early January 2017 Three Rivers DC conducted a survey with residents to gain their opinions on the budget decisions we need to make to balance our budget over the next 3 years. 

The results of this survey are now available. Budget Consultation Report (pdf)

Over the past few years, all councils have seen cuts in their financial support from central government. Since 2010, Three Rivers has seen its grant from central government cut by over £3 million. Over the next three years, funding will be cut again by a further £1.4 million.

Over the last decade, Three Rivers has made almost £4million of efficiency savings. This has mainly been achieved by sharing administration costs and back-office services with other councils and public bodies, cutting the number of councillors and councillors’ allowances, and reducing bureaucracy. The council has done this whilst keeping its part of the council tax paid by each household lower than that charged 10 years ago.

Next year (April 2017 - March 2018) a further £450,000 needs to be saved to balance the council's budget.
