Medium Term Financial Strategy

The Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) is a key element within the Council's overall strategic planning framework.  The Strategy takes a three year perspective and is reviewed, updated and rolled forward annually to set a framework for how budget pressures and priorities will be managed within the best estimates of available capital and revenue resources.

The latest MTFS relates to the financial years 2010/11 to 2012/13 and builds upon last year's by demonstrating more fully the way in which Partners' finances relate to the Council's, as well as providing more information on how resources are linked to priorities and plans.

Along with the need to plan for further efficiencies this updated MTFS identifies additional provision for the following priority areas:

The MTFS is the first of the three phase process for setting the Council's final budget, followed by:

  1. Presentation of Draft Budget proposals for consultation (January)
  2. Presentation of the Final Budget to Budget Council (February / March).
