Financial Management

Over the next four years, we will:

  • Use your Council Tax carefully to ensure we get the best value for money for local people.
  • Help our Local Authority partners in Somerset to build more affordable homes for local families on the waiting lists.
  • Encourage the generation of income from our remaining “Good” services at County Hall in providing services for other parts of the South West.
  • Cut waste at County Hall and free up a further £10 million for front line services.
  • Encourage innovation and the generation of income to supplement the Council Tax Revenue.
  • We will restore the services for children and adults in our care, and prioritise the preventative services.
  • Work towards a more "joined up" local government, working with District, Town and Parish Council partners to provide more efficient services across Somerset.
