Norfolk County Council budget consultation 2023/24

Closes 16 Dec 2022

Opened 21 Oct 2022

Overview

Norfolk County Council is committed to making Norfolk a county where businesses, organisations and communities continue to thrive together. Our Better Together, For Norfolk strategy sets out the Council’s five, interlinked, priorities: a vibrant and sustainable economy; better opportunities for children and young people; healthy, fulfilling and independent lives; strong, engaged and inclusive communities; and a greener, more resilient future. We’re proud to provide the valuable services that our residents need and deserve.

However, we continue to face significant challenges which includes higher costs and demand for services, this was the case even before the recent rise in inflation and cost of living. There were two phases to our budget planning; phase one included initial proposals to save £13 million, these were considered by councillors on 4th July and phase two savings were considered by councillors on 3rd October, when an additional £19.5 million in savings were presented to councillors. Together, this brings the total savings to £32.5 million.  

As we continue with huge uncertainty around our finances Norfolk County Council is continuing to work to bridge the gap in our budget with a target of £60 million.
