Setting the council budget for 2017/18

Our budget currently funds more than 700 services for people living and working in Brighton & Hove.

Our budget is set each year in February after the initial proposals are discussed in December.

The decision includes how much Council Tax will be. Council Tax provides 16% of our income.

Government funding for public services is decreasing and demand for our services is increasing.
