The proposals for the 2022/23 budget have now been published and can be viewed on our website www.fylde.gov.uk.
Feedback from all stakeholders received before 17th February 2022 will be considered at the budget-setting Council meeting of 3rd March 2022.
Feedback should be submitted by email using email@example.com or by post to Budget Consultation Feedback, The Town Hall, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, FY8 1LW.
For 2022/23 the Council is proposing several capital growth items. These seek to enhance the local environment for the residents and visitors and include:
- Replacement of Town Centre CCTV Systems
- Additional public toilets at North Beach Car Park
- Refurbished public toilets at Stanner Bank, Fairhaven Lake
- New Electric Vehicles
- New Play Area for Blackpool Road North Playing Field
- Rolling programme of improvements to Fylde Council’s Parks
- New Petanque Court on the Promenade
- Additional Mechanical Cleaning Sweeper Vehicle
In addition to the capital growth proposals there are 2 further revenue budget proposals for 2022/23 including:
- Increased resources for Flood Risk/Surface Water Management
- Extended Enforcement Team resources
All of these will contribute to ensuring Fylde is a vibrant and thriving place to live and visit and residents will be asked to contribute a modest additional sum within their Council Tax to ensure this is achievable.
Cllr Karen Buckley, Leader of Fylde Council, said: “This is the time of year when we lay out our vision for making Fylde an even greater place to live and to visit. These items, together with the brand new Windsports Centre at North Beach and the safety improvements to the Boating Lake, seek to further improve our leisure offers, make our towns safer, and move towards a greener, cleaner Fylde.
“For 2022/23 there is a proposed overall increase for Council Tax of less than 10p per week for a Band D property which is less than the maximum increase allowed and will help to safeguard services whilst delivering continued investment in our borough for the benefit of all.
“It’s important that we receive feedback from as many of our residents as we can, to ensure we’re providing what people would like to see, and I would encourage anyone with an interest to participate in our consultation.”
