Cardiff Council have issued a statement on their website outlining some of the reasons behind their proposals.
This will be a difficult budget, the financial pressures facing all Local Authorities are well known and the picture for Cardiff Council is no different. We are facing real terms cuts to its annual settlement from the Welsh Government, all set against a backdrop of increasing demand for services and a continued growth in population.
The Council is also facing pressures from other areas. This includes reduction in specific grants, in particular a £1.3m shortfall on transfer of the Learning Disabilities Grant, and also pressures in terms of income generation. Future settlements will also see greater cuts.
At this stage, these are budget proposals. The final budget will be set at Full Council on Thursday 28th February following consultation with other political parties in the Council and an intensive Scrutiny process.
