Councillors from South Holland District Council have agreed the adoption of their 2019/20 budget following a Full Council meeting last night (Wednesday 27 February).
Contrary to inaccurate reports in today's edition of the Spalding Voice, we can confirm that the budget is not over its estimate for the year ahead and that the true increase in the council's net budget for employees is £597k, and not the £1.6m stated in their article.
Members of South Holland District Council's Cabinet have approved an additional £270,000 in funding towards making the district cleaner, greener and safer.
The building of high-quality affordable homes, investment in the district's economic future and the protection of vital frontline services all form part of South Holland District Council's budget for 2019/20, which has been approved by cabinet members ahead of going before Full Council later this month.
For the winner of our Young Person category, a prize worth up to £500 will be kindly donated by Spalding Picture Framing. The exhibition is free to enter, and there is an option to have your displayed artwork available for the public to purchase.
