The council allocated funding as follows:

  • £0.47 million for electric vehicle infrastructure

An additional one off Adult Social Care Support Grant of £1.581 million from government will provide more money to support both older people and those with physical and learning disabilities.

A new Growing Our Communities Fund will provide each county councillor with £30,000 over three years to spend on community projects, which could include roads, giving local councillors the flexibility to spend money where their area needs it.
