Budget 2018/19

Our proposed budget options for 2018/19

Rotherham Council has proposed series of budget options for 2018/19, to meet a further funding shortfall of £15 million, on top of £162 million worth of savings which have already had to be made since 2010.

Protecting the most vulnerable children and adults, whilst continuing to provide core services – like road repairs and street cleansing – underpins the authority’s budget for 2018/19.

Further savings are needed due to ongoing reductions in funding from Government, an increasing demand for services as a result of a growing and ageing population, and increasing costs for the council in providing services.

To manage the financial challenge we face and achieve the necessary savings, we're working with partners to get best value for everything we do and focusing any investment on the agreed priorities set out in the Council Plan:

  • Every child making the best start in life
  • A strong community in a clean and safe environment
  • Every adult secure, responsible and empowered
  • Extending opportunity, prosperity and planning for the future
  • A modern, efficient council
