Budget Statement 2017/18 - 24/02/17
The Leader's budget statement was today passed by Full Council.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Stephen Brady said:

""Increasing Council Tax by 1.99% plus 3% for Adult Social Care has been a very difficult decision when we know that household budgets across the city are tight, but it is necessary to enable us to preserve as many Council services as possible and to help pay for escalating costs in our Adult Social Care service.

""Although the economic pressure on Hull has been extremely hard-hitting, we are determined that by investing in economic regeneration and our cultural offering based upon the City Plan, this will continue to bring a new found confidence and greater opportunities to the city and the people of Hull in the short, medium and longer term.

""Our capital investment in projects such as the City of Culture, the Ferens Art Gallery and the New Theatre, which reopens later this year, have clearly been a good decision. The increasing visitor numbers in the city clearly shows how there is a strong desire for arts and culture in Hull, and where other local authorities have chosen not to invest in their museums and galleries, we took the decision that it would be in the city's best interest to support them, along with the surrounding public realm. Our investment is already paying dividends for businesses in the city through the significant increase in visitor numbers in the first few weeks of 2017.""
