Revenue funding

Revenue funding 

Revenue funding comes from Council tax, business rates and Government grants.

We use this funding for any safety issue such as:

  • Blocked Drains
  • Potholes
  • Missing Road lines 

Facts and figures

  • Typically, we repair 30,000 safety defects at a fixed cost of £1.5m per year.
  • Council Tax and business rates provide approximately £40 per household/business per year for roads maintenance
  • A pothole of around 0.5m x 0.5m typically costs £50 to repair.
