How the budget is spent

The County Council put in place a programme of efficiency savings last year to achieve annual savings of £15 million in 2011/12 and 2012/13 in anticipation of reduced government grant. Following the Emergency Budget in June 2010, all services were required to identify further savings of 8%, which have been incorporated in the 2011/12 budget.
