Blaenau Gwent Council Budget 2023/2024

We’re looking to engage with residents about our Council Budget for 2023/24. There is an online survey available here.

The Council is facing a range of financial pressures which has resulted in a significant funding gap. We have put together a series of savings and efficiencies proposals to try and address this shortfall, which we’d like your opinion on. These are likely to include changes to some services, and an increase in Council Tax.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Steve Thomas says:

“Setting this year’s Budget is not an easy task, and it’s important we get out and engage with people in our communities so that we can explain in more detail the scale of the challenge and the difficult decisions we are facing.

“We also want to ask them for their views on priorities and ideas for council spending.”

 The Council’s final budget will be decided by councillors later in February.
