Despite the financial pressures, we continue to recognise our key priorities with additional investment in care services as well as roads which will receive a £245,000 ongoing revenue budget increase and a further commitment of £1m in each of the next two years from capital resources.
"This can only be achieved by redesigning and transforming other services to deliver considerable savings which allows us to reinvest."
South Gloucestershire Council will hold their meeting tonight at 7pm at the Civic centre in Kingswood.
