We are committed to providing the best possible services for everyone in South Tyneside.
The Medium Term Financial Plan outlines our approach to setting out our financial future.
It also sets the Council's budget.
The Secretary of State made an offer to social care authorities.
Adult social care authorities are local authorities which have functions under Part 1 of the Care Act 2014, namely county councils in England, district councils for an area in England for which there is no county council, London borough councils, the Common Council of the City of London and the Council of the Isles of Scilly.
The offer was the option of an adult social care authority being able to charge an additional "precept" on its council tax without holding a referendum, to assist the authority in meeting its expenditure on adult social care from the financial year 2016-17. It was originally made in respect of the financial years up to and including 2019-20. If the Secretary of State chooses to renew this offer in respect of a particular financial year, this is subject to the approval of the House of Commons.
The table below shows the budget of South Tyneside Council for 2023 / 24 and details the reasons behind any changes from the previous year. It demonstrates the amount of money that the Council needs to raise through Council Tax.
In total Council Tax payers will contribute £72.2m towards the running of South Tyneside Council. This is equivalent to £1,829.61 per Band D Council Tax payer. £1.377m of the additional council tax raised in 2023 / 24 will go towards specifically funding Adult Social Care.
