Budget 2023/24

Closed 2 Feb 2023

Opened 16 Dec 2022


Falkirk Council must take a number of difficult decisions if it is to continue to balance the amount of money it spends on key services with the amount of money it gets from the Scottish Government and other income sources such as Council Tax.

Preparation for how we will spend the money available to us next year (2023/24) is well underway. Councillors will take final decisions on this in March 2023.

This survey is an opportunity to tell us what you think the Council's spending priorities should be for the year ahead. The views expressed in this survey will be shared with the Councillors who decide the 2023/24 budget.

The Council currently expects to have to save up to £67m over the next four years, depending on funding settlements and inflation costs.

Despite the increasing financial pressures, the Council is still expecting to invest around £518m over the next year, delivering a huge range of services.

Before responding to this survey, please read the budget information we've prepared. This will help you better understand how Council services are funded and our budget planning process.
