South Gloucestershire Council Budget and Savings Programme – adult social care precept update

Following the local government finance settlement from Central Government in December and in recognition of the particular pressures on adult social care services, local authorities will now have the freedom to increase the adult social care precept by up to 3% in 2017-18 or 2018-19 whilst not exceeding 6% in total over the three-year period to 2019/20.

As South Gloucestershire Council is currently consulting on its budget and council tax levels for 2017-18, they would like to gauge your views on the option of taking up this increase. As such the Budget Survey now has an additional question on this issue and the survey period has also been extended to 23/1/17.
