At the end of each calendar year the Town Council is required to set its draft priorities and draft budget for the next financial year. It prepares a number of documents which assist with planning for the following financial year and beyond.
These are presented to Full Council in January 2020. The draft documents are listed below for you to download, read and comment on prior to the meeting. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 midday on Monday 13 January 2020.
Here are the draft documents for January 2020 – Please note the attached documents are still working drafts, whilst we finalise figures for new initiatives and service contracts. The draft budget papers presented to Full Council were based on the Council Tax Base from 2019-20 therefore the budget figures are likely to change again prior to discussions at Full Council on 20 January.
Wealden District Council also canvass your views on their proposed Corporate Plan as well as their budget and Medium-Term Financial Strategy.
The Plan sets the high-level strategic direction of the Council in serving the District’s communities and in working with its partners. This, in turn, is supported by their annual budget.
Details of how to provide you views are on Wealden District Council website.
East Sussex County Council also consult on their ‘Core Offer’. To help manage the financial pressures that the County Council are under, they have decided that it is appropriate to create a core offer – what can be provided in terms of a decent but basic level of services which residents should expect from them.
We will post more information here on how you can submit your comments when we receive it.
Police and Crime Commissioner Mrs Katy Bourne is also keen to hear your thoughts on Sussex Police funding.
