Budget consultation

Carlisle residents are being given the chance to have their say on the 2022/23 draft City Council budget.

Carlisle City Council’s Executive Committee is consulting with local residents, businesses and organisations about next year’s City Council draft budget.

The council has successfully achieved or identified over £9million in transformational savings since 2010/11 and now have a solid financial base in order to set their 2022/23 budget. There are no in year savings required for 2022/23; although there is a continued savings requirement to be found by 2023/24 of £2.050million.

Leader of Carlisle City Council, Cllr John Mallinson, said:

“This balanced budget continues the focus on the priorities of the Council: Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal, St Cuthbert’s Garden Village and the Sands Centre Redevelopment. It is a sensible budget that puts this Council in a good position as we move towards local government reorganisation in 2023.

“We have proposed a council tax freeze on our portion of the overall council tax bill as we want to do all we can to support our local residents during extremely challenging times.

Deputy Leader of Carlisle City Council, Cllr Gareth Ellis, added:

“The financial strategy, detailed in the budget proposal, will ensure that the Council continues to set a robust budget. In addition to the Council Tax freeze, we’re also proposing to freeze car parking charges in our car parks for the first hour.”

“This budget proposal to Council is the culmination of months of work through the budget process. This will be the last budget for Carlisle City Council, and I would like to thank all the officers and members who have contributed to this work.”

Comments will be considered as part of the ongoing budget process and will be assessed by the Executive at their meeting on Wednesday, 19 January. The final budget proposals will be discussed at Carlisle City Council’s Full Council on Tuesday, 1 February 2022.
