This website uses cookies. You can read more about how we use your personal data in our Privacy Notice

Norfolk County Council will set a new budget on 17th February 2020, against a backdrop of finding around £40m savings in savings in 2020-21.

In this consultation they are asking for views on proposed council tax level for 2020/21, including proposals for the adult social care precept.  The consultation closes at midnight on Tuesday 10th December 2019.  More info can be found at https://norfolk.citizenspace.com/consultation/budgetconsultation2020-2021/

Proposals

  • To help them deal with their cost pressures and invest in vital services they are proposing to raise general council tax by 1.99% in 2020/21.
  • To help them maintain their adult social care services they are proposing to raise the adult social care precept by 2% in 2020/21.

Effects

In 2019/20 the council tax charge for a Band D home was £1,362.24 and £96.05 of this was the adult social care precept. If both proposals went ahead council tax would increase by a total of 3.99%. This would mean:

  • In 2020/21 the council tax charge for a Band D home would be £1,416.51 and £123.21 of this would be the adult social care precept.
  • A typical Band D home would see an annual increase of £54.27 for the year, that’s £1.04 per week. Norfolk County Council have based their budget proposals for 2020/21 on the assumption that council tax will increase overall by 3.99%. If it does not increase they would have to find around an extra £16.3m in savings.

Saving Proposals

This year none of the outline budget proposals need to go out to further public consultation at this stage as none of them directly impact on service delivery.  We welcome any comments you have, either about our general approach or any individual savings proposals.
