Our medium term financial strategy

The council's key financial aims and objectives

The medium term financial strategy sets out the significant financial challenge faced by the council. The strategy forecasts income and expenditure across our revenue and capital budgets.

We've forecast that from 2016 to 2020 we need to make savings of over £77 million.

The strategy complements our corporate plan and the council's priorities.
