Financial Management


The Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) sets out the Council’s strategic approach to the management of its finances and presents indicative budgets and Council Tax levels for the medium term. 

It covers the General Fund Revenue Account and the Capital Programme, and includes grant funded projects. There are a number of assumption made within this plan which are regularly reappraised and updated and this is formally approved as part of the Council Tax and Budget setting process.

The principles outlined within this Plan were used to develop the Council’s budgets for 2011/12 and enabled financial projections to be made to 2014/15.
