SHBC Executive Meeting 15 February 2022

Date: 

Tuesday, 15 February, 2022

Surrey Heath Borough Council's next meeting of the Executive Committee will take place on Tuesday 15 February at 6pm. 

The majority of the meeting will focus on financial issues, including agreeing the Council’s budget for the upcoming financial year, Medium Term Financial Strategy, Revenue Growth and Efficiencies, use of reserves, and Capital Strategy.

Surrey Heath Portfolio Holder for Finance, Cllr Robin Perry said: "This is a challenging time for local government in general, as the reduction in central government funding and the impact of the pandemic continues to take its toll on the income we have available to fund local services. 

“In Surrey Heath, our aim is to set a prudent budget that balances the need to find savings, maintain priority services, make use of available reserves, and ensure that the Council moves progressively to a sustainable budget in the medium term. 

“As part of this plan, we will be recommending an increase of £5 on the Borough Council-related element of the Council Tax of a Band D property. This equates to 9.6p per week, a rise of just over 2%, which is less than half the rate of inflation.”
