HAVE YOUR SAY ON KENT COUNTY COUNCIL’S PROPOSED 2018/19 BUDGET

To balance KCC’s budget for 2018/19 we have to find an estimated £66m of savings in response to additional spending demands and reduced government grant. Our consultation includes plans for £56m of savings with a further £9m yet to be identified.

We would really welcome your comments on these plans as well as suggestions as to where you think savings can and should be made.

Leader of Kent County Council Paul Carter said in a recent press interview that “the consequences for next year’s budget are really very significant”

KCC plans to increase Council Tax by the amount permitted under the referendum principles, including the additional social care levy.  The estimated increase for 2018-19 is 3.99% (£41.84 per year for a band C property.) This will increase KCC’s share of the Council Tax bill for a band C property to £1,089.68 in 2018/19.

Since 2011-12 KCC has saved £589m in response to the financial challenge.

Please visit: www.kent.gov.uk/budgetconsultation to have your say on our proposals to fix the 2018/19 budget gap and tell us your priorities.
