2014/15 Budget and Medium Term Financial Strategy Consultation

Status: Closed

Wealden District Council is seeking views on its proposed budget for 2014/15 and its Medium Term Financial Strategy.

The Council’s Cabinet has agreed a proposal to set the Council’s 2014/15 budget based on a zero increase in Council Tax from the previous financial year. This would mean that council tax for the District’s services will remain unchanged for the fifth successive year. It has also agreed a proposed Medium Term Financial Strategy for the years to 2019 based upon a balanced budget for that period. The Strategy sets out the Council’s approach to medium term financial planning.

The Council is inviting views on its proposals in an online questionnaire. The consultation closes on 24th January 2014 to enable the Council to set its budget.
