Waverley Borough Council’s Executive last night unanimously approved the budget to be presented to full council next week.
Councillor Ged Hall, Portfolio Holder for Finance at Waverley Borough Council, said: “I’m pleased to say that with the hard work of officers and members, we can once again present to council a balanced budget. We have managed this with no cuts in services, no reductions in community grants and no increase in parking charges.
“On top of this, our capital spending on community facilities has been maintained, our service provision to residents re-enforced and our community grants still flow to the voluntary sector for sports clubs, support for vulnerable residents and the cohesion and vibrancy of our communities.
“Once again, we have managed to offset rising inflationary costs with efficiency, innovation and improved procurement strategies – accompanied by a small rise in council tax of around 10p per week on a band D property.
“Our residents can remain confident that this administration will do all it can to ensure there will be no cuts to resident’s services or community grants across the borough.”
