Balancing Kingston's budget

It's that time of year again where we're thinking about setting the budget for the new financial year.

As you may be aware, Kingston’s finances are challenging and we will need to do things differently. An increase in demand for our services makes our challenge even bigger.

We no longer receive any general funding from Government and the uncertainty of only receiving funding year on year means we can never plan with certainty for the long term.

However, we’re proud of Kingston and ambitious about the future, even though limited finances mean that we can no longer do everything in the same ways that we have in the past.

So we're keen to hear your views on how you would balance our budget and your ideas for how you could make savings or deliver services differently.

Are you a business ratepayer?

Tell us your views on our 2020-2021 budget proposals by Monday 10 February. Take a look at our budget proposal document and share you thoughts by filling in our short survey.

Please call 020 8547 4701 if you require the survey or any other information in a different format. You can read more information about the budget on our website.

    All local authorities are required to set an annual budget which balances the money spent on services with income generated and funding received. 

    To balance our budget for next year (2020/21), we have developed a set of proposals to save money or generate income and we would like to hear views from local business ratepayers. 

    The survey should be completed after reading the budget proposals for 2020/21.
