The Council & democracy Where the budget goes

Funding the budget

Your council tax provides about a quarter of our £534million budget for services that will keep this city thriving in 2017-18.

Slightly more (28.7%) comes from business rates. Most of the rest (39.6%) is Government funding.

But reductions announced last December have left us with a £30million budget gap over the next three years. We’ve mostly managed to avoid service cuts this time by finding efficiencies and extra commercial income – from our airport ownership for example.
