This page provides information on the approved council budget for 2021 to 2022.
This gives details of the budget agreed by council on Wednesday 24 February 2021. It provides information on the specific proposals for the 2021 to 2022 revenue budget and council tax.
The downloadable document below gives a less technical financial summary of our 2021 to 2022 revenue budget. It explains where the money comes from, including changes in government funding, where it will be spent, how this affects what council tax you pay and what monies we pay to fund services provided by other bodies. Read a council tax message from the City Mayor and the Lead Member for Finance and Support Services.
Each year your council tax bill tells you what you pay for Salford City Council’s services, as well as what you contribute to other important Greater Manchester-wide public services, such as the police and fire and rescue services commissioned by the Mayor of Greater Manchester. These latter are called “precepts” and always appear on your bill.
In addition, we’ve given details of the costs of transport and waste disposal in Greater Manchester. These don’t appear on your bill as they are mostly funded through a levy contribution from the local district councils, with a smaller proportion coming from the mayoral precept.
The budget book schedules will be available in the downloadable documents section below later in the year. The schedules give details of the budget for each service group of the council and an analysis both objectively for areas such as schools, libraries, highways maintenance and subjectively for employees, premises, supplies and services.
