You will likely find it's the same story for you - the central government grant was cut similarly to most other places but because your council is largely funded by its own council tax payers the overall impact of that grant cut was minimal.

First figures is council tax in millions, second figure is government grant in millions, that grant is having the maximum 16% taken from it.
