As we reported yesterday, Powys County councillors met to discuss and debate their budget for the upcoming year.

Next year’s council budget is set to go up to of £341.2 million after the council were told they would receive a 2.8 per cent increase in funding from the Welsh Government just before Christmas.

To balance next year’s budget a funding gap of £18.458 million needs to be plugged. Of that figure £10.652 million of this will be addressed by the council in a mixture of cuts, savings, and income generation. The Council Tax increase is supposed to cover the remaining £7.805 million.
