Councils set their budgets

North Somerset Council approved its budget at a meeting last night.

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."

– Council Leader, Cllr Nigel Ashton, North Somerset Council

South Gloucestershire Council will hold their meeting tonight at 7pm at the Civic centre in Kingswood.
