Budget consultation for 2011/12

This consultation is now closed. However, you can still view background information below.

Background information

South Oxfordshire’s provisional budget settlement from government was announced on 13 December and is much tougher than the council expected.

The revenue support grant provided by the government to the council has fallen from £7.2 million to only £6 million.  The £1.2 million cut is equivalent to a 16 per cent reduction in grant.  In addition, the council was advised that its 2012/13 grant will fall by another £0.75m (or 11 per cent).  The council is committed to finding ways of managing this while working to protect public services and does not expect there to be any major cuts to frontline services it provides next financial year.
