Cumbria County Council Efficiency Statement (2017/18 – 2019/20)

Cabinet will be asked to approve the County Council’s Efficiency Statement (2017/18 – 2019/20). The Efficiency Statement will form part of the MTFP 2017/18 – 2019/20 which will be approved by Council in February 2017.

The Efficiency Statement shows the benefits that will be gained by having certainty of funding and how that will support opportunities for further savings and efficiencies to achieve a balanced budget.

This follows the announcement by Government that Local Authorities can get certainty over the following funding streams: RSG, Transitional Grant and the Rural Services Delivery Grant for the next three years (2017/18 – 2019/20) if they approve locally an Efficiency Statement by Friday 14th October. It is a requirement that the Efficiency Statement is then submitted to Government by that date.
