The production of the budget is the means by which the council expresses in financial terms its plans for service provision in the coming year.
Whilst the most visible outcome of the budget process is the declaration of the Council Tax, the budget clearly has a greater significance and meaning for the council:
- it allocates the council's total financial resources between different directorates, services and portfolios
- it prioritises resources to align with and deliver the council's strategic planning framework
