Cumbria County Council continues to meet the challenge while protecting and investing in key services


At a meeting today, Cumbria County Council’s Full Council agreed a balanced budget and maintained its commitment to invest in key services for the people of Cumbria.

Full Council agreed the following:

A general increase of Council Tax by 1.99% for 2020/21;
An additional precept for Adult Social Care of 2.00% for 2020/21;
The Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) for 2020-2025;
Cllr Peter Thornton, Deputy Leader and Cabinet member for Finance said

“Yet again Cumbria has risen to the challenge and we have done this despite ongoing national funding pressures. Despite some significant challenges we have successfully delivered a balanced budget and more than that we are continuing to invest in essential services such as new care homes, support for new Extra Care Housing developments, investing in thousands of new LED streetlights and maintaining a road network that is larger than the network maintained by Highways England.

“This demonstrates how hard this council is working to help protect the vulnerable and those in need, whilst ensuring that any increases are kept to a minimum for everyone. 

“This council prides itself on providing value for money and key to us being able to do that is our transformation journey and new ways of working. In the coming years we have ambitious plans to change the way we deliver services and this clearly demonstrates our competency at providing effective services within the money we have available.”
