Full council sets the budget for Harlow Council each year.

Our budget books show how we plan to spend money to deliver services over the next financial year.

Medium term finance strategy 

Each year Full Council approves the medium term financial strategy, which provides the parameters for the council’s revenue spending and capital investment plans for the next 5 years.

Treasury management strategy

The treasury management strategy is approved by Full Council each year at the same time as the council’s budget is set. The strategy contains plans for how the council will invest and borrow money, as well as earn extra income.

Fees and charges

Each year we review our fees and charges as part of the budget process. New fees and charges are agreed at Full Council  before the start of each financial year.
