Budget consultation 2021/22

Breckland Council is seeking your views on its proposed 2021/22 budget which, if adopted, would see investment made in a number of frontline services.

The Council's draft budget will not only protect current frontline services from cuts, but see investment made in services, including animal welfare, fly tipping, business support, covid compliance and climate change. This is in addition to a previously announced enhanced waste collection service.

Despite uncertainty caused by the pandemic and its potential impact on central government funding and returns of local investments next year, Breckland Council believes it can achieve this strengthening of services in 2021 by implementing efficiencies and a small rise in annual district council tax. The proposal would see district council tax raised by £4.95 from April 2021, to £98.73 for Band D properties, the equivalent of £1.90 per week. However around three-quarters of Breckland residents live in Band A-C homes and so would see a smaller tax increase, with the district expected to remain among the very lowest in the country for council tax.

You can share your feedback on the proposed 2021/22 budget via consultation@breckland.gov.uk before the closing day of Friday 22 January.
