Buckinghamshire Council Budget Priorities

Buckinghamshire Council launched its budget consultation for 2021/22. Residents, businesses and other interested parties are being asked to submit their views on the council’s spending priorities for the coming financial year.

Council finances have faced added pressure this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The double effect of additional spending to support our vulnerable and the variety of one-off costs incurred, combined with the loss of income from regular funding streams such as parking revenue and business rates has brought about a budget shortfall. Although some additional funding from central government has helped, it doesn’t cover all the additional costs and has left a funding gap of around £7m.
