The County Councils’ total annual budget for the services in scope is approximately £700,000 for the years 2016/19, the final figure is dependent on the MTP saving required of BCC.
Every devolved town and parish council would receive their assigned budget for each of the 3 years to support them in service delivery. Draft figures have been provided to each town and parish council for download at the bottom of this page (April 2016 Tranche 2 Draft budget). With the success of Tranche 1 BCC is now offering the remaining local councils the option of signing up for Tranche 2.
• The budget per parish is based on the amount of work per activity in scope (for example grass cutting is calculated per area within parish). This provides a cost per service in each parish which added together with other service costs within the parish gives a financial envelope. We are providing each town and parish with details of the areas of work.
• The budgets provided will be the same as those that would be spent on these services if they are not devolved.
