See how much you would spend on maintaining Council-supported activities

As part of our consultation on the draft Long Term Plan, we've launched an online budget calculator that lets you experiment with the Council's budgets. The calculator allows you to see what would happen to the rates you would pay if you increased or decreased spending on different activities.

If you use the calculator, be sure to submit the budget you would be happy with, as councillors will use these to help them decide on expenditure in the draft Long Term Plan.
