The budget

The budget and precept requirement for financial year 2017/18 is set out in the following report to Hampshire's Fire and Rescue Authority on Tuesday 21 February 2017.

The efficiency plan

The Home Office has offered any Fire and Rescue Authority a four-year funding settlement to 2019/20, in return for a robust, transparent and locally owned efficiency plan. Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority agreed to accept the government’s offer by publishing the attached efficiency plan for the four year period 2016/17 to 2019/20 which was approved by the Fire Authority on 07 September 2016 as part of the Medium Term Financial Strategy.

It includes:

  • The benefits for the community and the Authority
  • Cashable savings and timetable for delivery
  • Collaboration and flexible working practices
  • Use of reserves
  • Performance information and reporting

The Home Office also requested a standard funding and budget assumptions template to be completed. The template includes forecasts of revenue costs, revenue funding, capital expenditure, capital financing and the level of reserves. This has been populated directly from the approved medium term financial strategy.
