Councils in England will see their overall spending power fall by an average of 1.8% from next year, the government says. However, some local authorities will see it drop by up to 6.4%.
Most local authority funding comes from central government, with about a quarter raised through council tax.
English councils say this central funding is being cut by 8.8%. However, government ministers say the amount local authorities can spend – taking into account other resources, including business rates – will fall on average by 1.8%.
