Cotswold District Council Budget Consultation 2020/21

Cotswold District Council has carried out a consultation on its proposed budget for the 2020/21 financial year. (It ran from Monday 6 January to Sunday 26 January). The findings will be shared with councillors before they make decisions on the budget at a council meeting on 26 February.

The budget covers areas including housing, leisure and recreation, environmental health, waste collection, planning applications and local taxation collections. It does not cover education, highways, libraries or social care, which are the responsibility of Gloucestershire County Council. 

Planned developments are set to include an improved waste service offering a separate food waste collection and more recycling, increased parking provision in Cirencester and investments in facilities such as Cirencester’s Corinium Museum.

The consultation also gathered views on how the council can raise additional income from investing in local property; to a proposed Council Tax rise of £5 a year for a Band D household. It will also ask for opinions on proposals to raise parking charges and the cost of garden waste collections.
