The Leader in presenting and tabling the Labour group’s update to the four year plan on the Budget and Council Tax proposals for 2019/20 and 2020/21, stated that recent Government announcements had indicated an end to Austerity, however this was not the case.  The cumulative year on year impact of Austerity had had a profound human cost and services had been severely affected.

 

She added that she had not entered politics to make cuts, however Local Government had faced the brunt of the Government’s Austerity measures, and the shortfall in adult and children social care funding was significant and mirrored the national picture, and in recognition the Local Government Association was lobbying Government vociferously on this issue.

 

In addition Central Government funding to Local Authorities  had been cut and by 2020 the Rate Support Grant would be down to zero.  That Ministers were being lobbied in order to get a fairer funding formula for Bradford.  Despite the difficult fiscal climate and the continued impact of Austerity, Bradford was still managing its finances well and good progress was being made in service delivery.  Bradford had taken a proactive approach with an ambitious business/economic strategy, and growing the economy was the only viable way of creating jobs for the district and improving the lot of Bradford folk.  In the sphere of Adult Social Care, Bradford had spearheaded the concept of independent living;  Bradford had also seen a significant increase in the number of new homes being built, the majority being erected on brownfield sites;  visitor numbers to the district were up and the success of the literature festivals in Bradford and Ilkley were alluded to; Illuminate and the Saltaire festivals were events worthy of note;  school attainment levels were continuing on a upward trajectory and further improvements would be seen as initiatives to drive up improvements came to fruition.

 

Portfolio Holders alluded to successes in service delivery in their respective areas and commented on the priorities for the forthcoming year.  The funding crisis within Adult and Children Social Care was particulary highlighted as an on going issue going forward, although the Council had earmarked additional resources in these areas.  Investment was also seen as a major driver to boost the Bradford economy and create jobs.

 

The Leader acknowledged that increasing spending in Adult and Children Social Care impacted on the spend in other service areas.  The Leader added that that this budget consultation would continue till the end of January 2019, and that she wanted people to participate in the budget consultation process and make their views known.
