We have begun the process of setting our budget for the 2018/2019 financial year. This will be approved in February 2018.

The Challenge - In 2017/2018 the Council has received £352,676 in Revenue Support Grant from Central Government. By 2020/2021 this will be reduced to £0.

Due to this and other cost pressures such as rising prices and increases in demand for services we will need to save a further £870,000 from our revenue budget by 2020/2021. At least £385,000 of this will need to be saved in 2018/2019.

Remember – not all of the Council Tax you pay goes to this Council.
In 2017/2018 Craven District Council will keep just £162.21 (£3.12 per week) of the £1,699.35 paid in Council Tax by a Craven household to fund the services it provides (based on average Band D property Council Tax 17/18). The rest will go to North Yorkshire County Council, North Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, and Parish/Town Councils.

Remember – not all of the Business Rates you pay go to this Council.
In 2017/2018 Craven District Council will collect £18.317 million in Business Rates. It will keep just £1.753 million (about 9.5%) of this to fund the services it provides. The rest will go to Central Government  for re-distribution nationally, North Yorkshire County Council and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

That’s why it’s so important that you tell us how we should spend your money and how you think we should make the savings we need.  

The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete. If you want to find out more about Craven District Council’s budget before completing the survey, visit our website www.cravendc.gov.uk/yourmoneyyoursay

The consultation will close at midnight on Wednesday 27th September 2017.

Many thanks for your response.
