The council faces significant financial challenges which could have a detrimental impact on services provided to residents unless they are addressed. There is currently a potential budget gap of in excess of £20m per annum by 2025/26 which could increase further. This is mainly caused by increasing demand for social care for vulnerable adults and children in combination with the recent increase in inflation. Therefore, the council is considering a number of possibilities towards meeting this shortfall and to help protect key services for residents. This consultation considers one such response.
