Your council tax, benefits or business rates accounts will be offline

From 4pm on Friday 31 March until 5pm on Monday 3 April you will not be able to access your council tax, benefits or business rates accounts on MyGuildford. This is whilst we run our year end processes. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Budget consultation outcome

We have been working for some years to make sure that we deliver services in the most cost-effective way. This has already resulted in efficiency savings of £9 million and £6.8 million of additional income since 2013-14 and further efforts will continue to reduce the cost of our services.

However, the coronavirus pandemic has already had a major impact on finances and continues to do so.

The Council has spent an additional £4.5 million supporting our community through the crisis and have seen a reduction in income from car parking, leisure centres and other services of £8million.

We are currently working on the basis that we need to save another £3 million next year, rising to £4.2 million by 2023-24.

We asked you what your views were on where you think savings should be made and what our priorities for spending should be. We wanted to find out which services are important to you and which are not so important. See the results of the consultation below.
