Details of Scarborough Councils Draft Budget

Published by Jon Burke at 4:55pm 3rd February 2020.

It's claimed Scarborough Borough Council’s draft budget for 2020/21, which is closely aligned to its Building a Better Borough programme, will be used to improve the provision of essential, good quality public services throughout the borough and help to provide a clean, safe, attractive environment for everyone.

Cllr Steve Siddons, Leader of Scarborough Borough Council said:

“The delivery of good quality public services is critical to ensuring a high quality of life for our residents, businesses and the many visitors that come to our borough each year. Investment in these services is key to achieving our ambitions for Building a Better Borough. The budget for next year reflects this and demonstrates our commitment to getting back to basics and making the improvements to essential services that people are asking for.”

The council’s refuse and recycling service is set to benefit from a cash injection of £1.5m to replace eight refuse collection vehicles that travel the length and breadth of the borough, collecting waste from 58,000 homes each week. The new vehicles will have the most technically enhanced engines, helping to reduce air pollution and making the environment cleaner.

The draft budget, which is set to be reviewed by the council’s Cabinet as part of a financial strategy report on 11 February, also includes an additional allocation of £120,000 to invest in ‘getting back to basics’ and helping to deliver on the promises the council has made to communities in recent months. Filey will be one of the first places in the borough to benefit from the additional money, with £20,000 being committed to complete the renewal of parts of the town’s seafront railings. 

The strategy will also be taken to Full Council on 28 February for final approval.

and they will probably reduce the amount of times it is collected to save the money!
