Quick budget overview

Each year we deliver hundreds of services to 132,000 residents and 58,000 households.

Our services are funded in 3 ways:

  1. Council Tax.
  2. Income from fees and charges.
  3. Grants from Welsh Government.

Welsh Government funds 70% of our income, but they are cutting our funding year on year.

At the same time the cost of delivering our services is increasing.

This is causing a budget gap.

The budget gap means cuts of £100m over the last decade.

So how do we fill the gap?

By increasing our levels of income and reducing the amount we spend.

So what are we doing?

  • We are changing the ways we deliver services and looking for different ways to save money.
  • We will continue to invest in some really important projects, such as school transformation and housing projects.

Powys is a great place to live and we're committed to keeping residents at the heart of everything we do!
