The Local Government Finance Settlement for 2016/17, which was announced in December 2015, also included an illustrative four-year settlement to include the years 2017/18 to 2019/20.
Providing councils with the option of longer-term funding settlements is a significant development compared to previous one and two year funding allocations.
The illustrative funding levels for 2017/18 onwards is conditional upon those councils that wish to take up the offer publishing an ‘Efficiency Plan’.
Fylde Council is to accept the government offer of a four-year funding settlement. The Council’s Efficiency Plan is accessible to the right of this page.
