Changes in our net expenditure

Our net expenditure has increased this year due to increased costs driven by inflation, reductions in funding from partners and increased demand. The Council has continued to follow its strategy of increasing income and efficiency over the year. This has meant that although our net budget has increased we have been able to absorb most of this increase in costs whilst maintaining services.
