Council finances and accounts

Efficiency plan

The government has offered local councils a guaranteed minimum grant up to March 2020. The funding covers:

  • Revenue Support Grant
  • transitional funding
  • Rural Services Delivery Grant

To get this funding, each council must submit an efficiency plan to the government.

Our most recent efficiency plan covers the period from April 2017 to March 2020. It includes an overview of our:

  • medium term financial plan
  • budget planning process
  • service design principles
  • boards, spending review and governance
  • partnerships
  • transformation projects and programmes
