Council budget 2015/16

Have your say on our budget

Thank you for your interest in the budget engagement which ran between 3 October and 19 December 2014. We will publish a report on the feedback on Friday 28 January. The Council will consider the report when it makes a final decision on Friday 12 February 2015.

The Council faces a budget challenge which affects how much money we have to invest in our services in the coming years. Between 2015 and 2018, the Council's annual budget will remain around £950 million. However the cost of providing services is expected to be £1.01 billion. We need to save £67 million from our budget, over the next three years, to make sure we can provide the services that are important to the people of Edinburgh.

You can read more information about the Council's budget in our Key Facts and Figures booklet.
