Challenging times for North Yorkshire County Council

A NORTH Yorkshire council which is set to lose £34.5 million in funding over the next two years has said Government claims over how its spending power will be affected look “extremely misleading”.

North Yorkshire County Council's provisional Government settlement for 2014/15 will be £14.4 million less than this year and it is predicted to lose another £20.1 million in 2015/16. It could lead to the authority raising council tax bills for the first time since 2010.

The financial situation will be outlined to the council’s executive tomorrow as it faces cutting £77 million between 2015 and 2019. This is on top of £94 million of savings being made between 2011 and 2015.

In a report, its corporate director for strategic resources, Gary Fielding, said the Government had suggested the amount the authority would be able to spend next year would drop by just 1.3 per cent, despite its funding being reduced by 8.8 per cent, and will actually rise the year after.

Spending power covers a council’s entire resources, not just its Government grant, but Mr Fielding’s report said the Whitehall calculation masked the true extent of central funding cuts because it included locally-collected council tax and extra funding which is purely for health.

The county council’s financial planning factored in a two per cent council tax rise for 2014/15, when the Government is offering authorities which freeze bills a grant equivalent to one per cent of council tax income. Officials believe taking the grant would leave the council with an extra £2.3 million shortfall, while a two per cent increase would add £21 to Band D bills.

Council leader John Weighell said £171 million of cuts in eight years would mean the authority losing more than a third of its spending power.

He said: “In the four years ending March 2015, frontline services have been protected as much as possible, with just under two-thirds of our savings coming from non-frontline budgets. However, we now face an extremely challenging situation, particularly for 2015/16.”

It would appear that Coun John Weighell is complaining that the cuts North Yorkshire County Council he has to oversee due to the economic crisis (supposedly created by Labour).

When spending over the years it seems that the Conservatives had a 45 per cent say in all spending matter so we can only say that they had the support of the Liberal Democrats, which gave these now moaning conservatives 53 per cent of the say.

How A Council such as North Yorkshire County Council has to cut its budgets of 77 million. Is Councillor Weighell, with tongue in cheek saying that central government may have got it wrong? I will gamble that there will be no cuts in Councillors or special responsibility allowances. Councillors from all parties will keep what they think they are entitled to. I feel his or her “Motto” must be “everyone else must suffer but not us”

According to the Telegraph more than half of the local authorities preparing to ignore the Government's demands to freeze Council tax are Conservative-led. But how can this be when only recently David Cameron accused Labour councils of being out of touch by raising taxes? Is he suggesting that Conservative led North Yorkshire's proposal to raise household bills by £21 for the average household is the result of irresponsible fiscal management ? This from a man who has increased the overseas aid budget and continues to support the likes of China,Brazil and india from the public purse!

What I was trying to say was;

Tony Blair took us to a pointless and horrendously expensive overseas war, Gordon Brown failed to regulate the banks ultimately leading to their downfall, he also sold all our gold reserves at rock bottom prices, Labour overspent massively on PPI projects, they opened the floodgates to immigration and couldn’t wait to give all the freeloaders free housing etc, they lost control of the benefits system leaving it open to fraud and misuse….. I could go on, the list is endless

Labour single handily destroyed this country… perhaps something we will never recover from. But not to worry, bury your heads in the sand and blame someone else.

ps: the labour council are doing a pretty good job of ruining York – It seems to run in their blood in that everything they touch turns to ………..!

While this is all very interesting what has this to do with North Yorkshire's Council proposal to reject Eric Pickles council tax freeze? If more than half the local authorities preparing to ignore the Government's demands to freeze Council tax are Conservative-led then either the policy has failed or the councils have, especially when David Cameron has made the Council tax Freeze a key plank of his manifesto . Perhaps North Yorkshire Council are just irresponsible with money !

One can never understand Councils
They have a £200,000 pa year on year chief exec
They have a huge, expensive & unwanted senior team
They have unaffordable pensions
They are working hundreds of thousands of pounds of discretionary overtime
They are still employing temporary workers. The Councillors have not cut
their number, allowances or expenses
Still jobs with Climate Change, Diversity, Political, Compliance & europe in the title. They do nothing for the taxpayers
Taxpayer still paying for Union Reps.
All before they get anywhere near the front line

Way to go!

Do NOT put up the cost of Garden Rubbish collection as people will dump it where ever they can

You have the questions as I have £200,000 per annum that calculates over a 53-week year to £3773.58 per week. Councillors Basic Allowance £8994.00 x 72 = £647,568.00 This is money just for being elected these particular figure do not take into account any special responsibility allowances. Such as the Council Leader’s £24704.00 with varying amounts for chairs and vice chair.
These allowances should reduce by similar percentage as all other. Simple Example employees total 200 reduced to 100 = 50 percentage reductions in staff. Hypothetically, let us assume the average earning was £18,200 per Annum Multiplied by 200 £3,640.000.00.
We should logically carry this hypothesis through all the council on a pro rata basis. Beginning with Senior salaried personnel.
