Scarborough Hit Hardest by Latest Government Cuts


Scarborough Council will see their overall spending power fall by 6.4% from next year, the biggest in England.

Spending power measures the overall revenue funding available for local authority services, including Council Tax, locally retained business rates and government grants.

Most local authority funding comes from central government, with about a quarter raised through council tax.

Scarborough council have made major savings over recent years but further cuts could see services like parks, libraries, road maintenance and bin collections suffer.

The map below, created by the BBC, shows how the latest reduction in spending power will affect local district and unitary authorities in 2015-16.

It does not include the shire counties - or county councils - in two-tier authority areas, which also face cuts in government money.

  1. I am sure our councillors will still stick in as many expense claims as possible, they seem to forget it is our money in the first place.
    If we didn't have to give our money to the EU or foreign aid, we could all pay less tax and have better services.
