Council Budget Setting 2014

The Scottish Parliament has now approved the Local Government Finance Order that sets out the allocations to each council. The order can be viewed here but the earlier circular is here Word as it has more detail for local use.

Councils are now setting their budgets for next year in the light of this settlement.

We have produced three new communication materials (in pdf format) to help branches with local campaigns. There are also more infographics here...

These will also are available for download on this and the Public Works web page and are particularly useful in social media.

We plan to make more use of infographics in both the Public Works and Worth It campaigns and would welcome ideas from branches on subjects they would like us to cover.
