In the news: Budget Consultation 2023/24

Each year the council engages residents on matters relating to the draft budget. The purpose of this engagement exercise is to secure views and opinions from the community that will inform the decision-making process in respect of the setting of the budget for 2023/24.

Basildon Council gets no general government grant funding at all. This means the council must get all of its income from council tax, business rates, money it can raise itself and specific grants it can bid for.

In setting its budget it must balance its income with its spending by increasing income or reducing spending. And this is what it wants your views on.

Do you think Basildon Council should spend more, less or the same on maintaining parks and open spaces?

The consultation will run from 1 August to 5 September 2022.
