Cardiff Council

Council Budget

​​​​​​​Cardiff Council provides a wide range of essential services to the city.  Some of these are easy to see – street lighting, road maintenance, waste and recycling collections, schools and libraries.  Others are less visible, such as providing care and support to vulnerable people of all ages.

Every February, the Council sets out a budget for the next year that details how much money we will be able to spend on each of the services that the council provides.

A multi-million pounds, post-pandemic recovery budget for Cardiff​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window​​ - designed to help create new jobs, deliver new council homes, build better schools and safeguard vital public services - has been agreed by Cardiff Council.​


The Impact of Covid-19 

The full financial impact of the Covid-19 crisis is not yet fully understood. It remains difficult to predict the course of the pandemic and its impact on services and on Council finances over the year ahead. 

It is clear that the direct impact of the pandemic will be felt well into the next financial year.  It is also clear that the indirect consequences of the health and economic crisis caused by the pandemic will be felt for years to come. 

Recovery and Renewal: Priorities for 2021/22

Over the months ahead the Council and its partners must continue to focus on managing the pandemic and doing all we can to keep our citizens and communities safe.

However, as we look towards the spring and to recovery and renewal, we want to hear where you think we should be placing our focus, and investment, post-pandemic.
