How the budget is spent

The County Council put in place a programme of efficiency savings during 2010/11 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% each year over the two financial years 2011/12 and 2012/13. These assumptions were built-in to the financial strategy approved as part of the budget for 2011/12
