Conwy County Borough Council – Financial Sustainability Assessment
23 August 2021

We did this assessment as financial sustainability continues to be a risk to councils putting in place proper arrangements to secure value for money in the use of resources. In part, this was informed by experiences of some councils in England, our knowledge of the financial situation in councils in Wales, and the general trend of decreasing resources for local government combined with rising demand for some services. We did a similar project in 2019-20, before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Recognising that using reserves to balance its budget was unsustainable, the Council has taken steps to improve its budget outturn position and increase usable reserves.
