No. Most authorities have budgeted within guideline this year. Eight authorities have set budgets in excess of the guideline but most have done so by a very small amount. In the case of Aberdeenshire and East Dunbartonshire Councils, we allowed them to continue to budget over guideline this year, on the basis that they would return to guideline in subsequent years.
