Budget consultation 2022/23

We're seeking your views on our proposed 2022/23 budget.

We've put forward a draft budget which is balanced for 2022-23, despite these challenging times. If the budget is adopted, we will continue to have one of the lowest Council Tax rates in the country, and maintain our core services. We'll be in a strong position to keep investing in our corporate priorities because we know these matter to you too. We want to invest in our goal to achieve NetZero by 2035; our Thriving Places priority to build a strong economy in Breckland; our Inspiring Communities priority to help our residents live safe and healthy lives.

We believe we can achieve this budget in 2022 despite uncertainty caused by the pandemic and the future of our funding from central government. We'll achieve it by implementing efficiencies which do not affect service provision and a small rise in annual district Council Tax.

The proposal would see district Council Tax raised by £4.95 per year for a Band D property. This means that from April 2022, a Band D household would pay £103.68 per year: the equivalent of £1.99 per week. Around three-quarters of Breckland residents live in Band A-C homes and so would see a smaller tax increase.
