This jigsaw piece represents a group of services relating to Your Council.
The figure on the jigsaw piece shows how much we currently spend on these services in a year – a total of £16.7 million.
Each piece is important in its own right, but the finances available to us are continuing to shrink while demand for services is continuing to grow.
The £16.7 million for core council services covers everything from democratic and legal services to taxation and customer services (the call centre and customer services points in libraries).
It also includes bereavement services and registrars, governance and assets, human resources, and communications and policy.
