Consultation on our 2022/23 spending plans

Derbyshire Dales residents and businesses are being invited to have their say on the District Council's 2022/23 spending proposals and council tax.

Councillors will meet on 3 March to consider the proposals.

Although the District Council collects council tax on behalf of other councils, the police and fire & rescue service, it only keeps and spends around 11% of the total on the services it provides.

Residents' council tax will fund 38% of the Council's £18.2-million revenue budget in the coming financial year, with sales, fees and charges (46%) being the biggest contributor, followed by Business Rates (7%) and Government Grants (9%).

No cuts to services are proposed in 2022/23, but councillors will consider a proposal to increase the Council's share of council tax by 1.94%, an average of 8p per week (Band D). This will help the authority to fund key projects in economic regeneration to improve the prosperity of our district.

The Council says future financial uncertainties include the outcome of Government reviews of grant funding and business rates, as well as the impact of rising inflation and fluctuating levels of income, especially income associated with recycling.
