Financial Plans for 2016/17
Address: Headquarters, Newtown St Boswells, Melrose TD6 0SA
We agreed our 5 year revenue budget and 10 year capital plan on the 11 February 2016 to deliver our corporate priorities.
- The revenue budget will spend £263m on Council services in 2016/17 and £1.3 billion over the next five years.
- This balanced budget has managed to maintain most services with continuing financial pressures.
- The capital plan will invest £309m over the next 10 years.
- This sees significant additional investment in roads, schools, flood protection, community infrastructure, IT and regeneration projects.
