The budget challenge
The council’s 2018-19 budget: £1.4 billion – the council’s annual spending, including £360 million that is passed straight to schools.
The council’s costs have risen by £386 million since 2011-12, due to things such as inflation and rising demand for services.
Our Government grant has reduced by £204 million and is expected to fall to zero in a couple of years.
