Hampshire County Council is the democratic body that serves the residents and businesses of the whole of Hampshire.
The County Council spends around £1.9 billion a year on serving Hampshire's 1.3 million residents. We are responsible for 80% of spend on council services in Hampshire.
Residents have told us they support our financial strategy. It has served the county well. We have kept Council Tax down and delivered value for money for Hampshire residents. This has enabled us to sustain some of the strongest public services in the country.
Demand for our services is increasing but Government is reducing the money it gives us to pay for services. Over the next four years, we want to work with the people of Hampshire to meet the financial challenges we face and improve outcomes further.
