Budget Survey

Residents and businesses are invited to have their say on the council’s spending priorities for the next year.

Like many councils, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on Maidstone Borough Council and the community it serves. The Council has been at the forefront of the response to the pandemic, for example in supporting rough sleepers and the homeless, establishing a community hub to support vulnerable members of society, and distributing over £30 million of grants to small businesses.

The restrictions introduced in response to the pandemic have resulted in a significant reduction in the income which we collect in order to subsidise local services. This includes income from parking, planning applications, council tax, business rates and rents from property which the council owns. Additional costs have been incurred in responding to the pandemic and providing support to the most vulnerable members of our community.

For 2021/22, the Council is facing a budget gap of £3.3m and we are keen to hear your views to help inform our response to this exceptional challenge. We will be considering all areas to identify options for reducing costs or increasing income. It’s important that we understand what your priorities are so that this can be taken into account as we consider the budget for the coming financial year.

The council funds a significant proportion of its spending through council tax. The basic average council tax charge made by this council for 2020/21 is £265.59 (band D charge for a non-parished area). More information about council tax and how we spend this can be found in our summary document.

The survey closes 5th November 2020.

It takes around 6 minutes to complete.
