Budget 2019/20

Members of Conwy County Borough Council have today [28/02/19] set the Council Tax and Budget for 2019/20.

Cllr Sam Rowlands, Cabinet Member for Finance introduced the report to the meeting of the Council.

He said, "The budget for 2019/20 has been one of the most difficult budgets this Authority has had to balance.

“There are pressures outside our control, such as increases in care costs, reductions in specific grants, along with increasing demand for services.  This budget addresses the £15.3million resource shortfall and provides for our services by using a combination of budget cuts and a Council Tax rise.

“We’ve listened to the concerns of schools in relation to their budgets, that’s why today we agreed that any additional funding that we receive for pay pressures in schools would be passed straight through to them to support their budgets.”

The Council approved the Budget and set the Council Tax for 2019/20.

The Council supported the recommendation that Conwy County Borough Council’s part of the Band D Council Tax for 2019/20 be £1280.48. 

That’s an increase of £112.16 for the year - equivalent to £2.16 extra per week.

Cllr Rowlands thanked councillors and staff for their work to tackle the challenges presented by the resource shortfall. 

He added, “We’ve worked really hard to get to this point, now we’ve got 12 months to prepare for 2020/21 - that’s going to be the next big challenge for the whole Authority.”
