Council’s £7m overspend
Brighton & Hove City Council has reported that its 2015/16 budget is likely to be overspent to the tune of more than £7m and significant future cuts will be inevitable.
Blaming a “huge rise in demand for social care” council leader Warren Morgan has also said that the recently announced changes to local business rates are unlikely to make up the shortfall in the future when councils will be able to keep 100% of all business rates after 2020. Currently half of everything that is raised locally goes to central government for redistribution.
Cllr. Morgan is predicting that further cuts of up to £50m will be required in the next four years
