Chancellor's budgets

Every year the Chancellor sets out the Government’s plans for public finances and the economy in a Budget statement. From autumn 2017, the Budget will be delivered in the autumn, instead of in the spring.


Ahead of each Budget statement the LGA responds to the Government's call for written representations. Our submissions outline proposals for government policy for inclusion in the forthcoming Budget. Following the Budget statement, we publish an on-the-day briefing, highlighting the main announcements and their impact on local government.

This section brings together all our work on Budgets since 2013.
