Budget 2009-2010

The City Council approved the 2009/10 budget at its meeting on 24 February 2009. The council tax increase for 2009/10 for City Council services is 1.9%. The overall level of council tax for Birmingham, when the increases for the separate fire and police authorities are added, is 2.05%.

Budget headlines are:

  • £7 million to help people with learning disabilities, people with physical disabilities and older adults;
  • An extra £5 million for the extension of our popular doorstep recycling programme; to keep roads and footpaths well maintained and for waste disposal;
  • £1 million, growing to £4 million by 2011/12 to meet the capital costs for the new Library of Birmingham plus additional funding to attract international events;
  • All of Birmingham's secondary schools will be rebuilt or refurbished with the start of the £2.4 billion Building Schools for the Future Programme;
  • Over £400 million spending on housing in Birmingham over the next three years;
  • £1 million for constituencies, working with partner agencies, to meet local priorities and offset the abolition by government of the Neighbourhood Renewals Fund;
  • The business transformation programme will save £670 million over the next ten years;
