The proposals for the 2021/22 budget have now been published and can be viewed on our website www.fylde.gov.uk. Feedback from all stakeholders received before 19th February 2021 will be considered at the budget-setting Council meeting of 4th March 2021. Feedback should be submitted by email using listening@fylde.gov.uk or by post to Budget Consultation Feedback, The Town Hall, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, FY8 1LW.

For 2021/22 the Council is proposing several capital growth items. These seek to enhance the local environment for the residents and visitors and include:

  • Additional access control measures at a number of parks
  • Ashton Gardens Lighting Improvement Scheme
  • Park View Drainage Improvement Scheme
  • Fairhaven Boathouse – Remodelling and Refurbishment Scheme
  • Play Area Improvements at a number of parks
  • Friends of Newton Community Park Development Scheme – £50k Fylde Council contribution
  • Staining Drainage Improvement Scheme
  • A further Scheme of Tree planting throughout the borough

In addition to the capital growth proposals there are 3 further revenue budget proposals for 2021/22 including:

  • Support for the Kirkham Town Council CCTV Scheme Extension
  • Support for the Newton-with-Clifton Parish Council CCTV Scheme
  • The allocation of government covid support funding to all areas of the borough

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.

For 2021/22 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.
