In 2019/20, we aim to deliver £12m of efficiency savings. These savings will make us work more efficiently and will mean that council tax payers get more for their money.
Our overall aim is to make sure that the money we spend results in high quality services that meet and satisfy local needs, ensuring we achieve the best value possible from every pound we spend.
Improving value for money is at the heart of everything we do. In South Tyneside, we work hard to ensure that we achieve high value for money. We always challenge ourselves to make sure our costs compare well with others by identifying and challenging areas of high spend.
