The Medium Term Financial Strategy

The Strategy forms part of the Council’s planning and performance framework, and provides the context for the more detailed budgeting process.

The Medium Term Financial Strategy is refreshed each year, to give a rolling three-year assessment of the fiscal environment, after the close of the previous year, and before the budgeting round commences.

It sets out key messages for efficient and effective management of the available resources. It aims to provide citizens and stakeholders with an insight into the financial environment the Council operates in.
