A picture of the Coventry skyline with the text 'the Council's budget 2024/25 next steps' over the top.

Councils are required by law to set a balanced budget every year.

In Coventry, we started the process of planning for this year's budget last April. We were already aware that there were serious funding pressures. This included high inflation and social care costs which have been building for years. As a result, we needed to take a long look at our services and have identified places where we have to make cuts. 

These are difficult decisions for our organisation to make and we want to be as open and transparent with you about them as possible. To that end, we've put together these webpages to explain the situation, detail our savings targets and keep you updated on how we intend to achieve them. We'll also be sharing information on our social media pages and in our weekly newsletter
