Delivering efficiencies and expenditure reductions
In 2012/13, we:
Achieved £47 million of savings, bringing our total efficiency savings for the last two years to £100 million.
Froze our element of Council Tax at the same level for the fourth year running, retaining our position of having one of the lowest taxes of all county councils in England.
Launched a programme to share some of our ‘back office’ support services with Hampshire Constabulary and Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service. This will include Occupational Health and Wellbeing; Estates and Property Services; Finance; and Procurement.
