Budget consultation 2025-26

Every year Kent County Council sets a budget to determine how much money will be spent on services.

Budget consultation 2025-26

We are continuing to face the challenge of significant spending demands and cost increases largely in adults and children’s social care and home to school transport. We need to manage this within the funding available, which mainly comes from Council Tax and Government grants. This requires tough choices about priorities for the future.

As we plan our spending for the year ahead, we need to hear your views on:

  • our council tax proposals,
  • how comfortable you would be with reductions in spending across our different service areas
  • your suggestions for how to make further savings and increase income.

Have your say by Wednesday 7 August 2024 at the KCC budget consultation 2025-26 website
