In 2016-17 we offered local authorities a 4-year settlement that guarantees their allocations for Revenue Support Grant, Rural Services Delivery Grant and Transition Grant, and that Business Rates top up and tariff payments will not change to reflect changes in relative needs. The 4-year settlement has been accepted by 97 per cent of all eligible local authorities, enabling improved planning of service delivery and transformation and more effective collaboration with local partners. We will bring forward specific proposals for how we implement this deal for 2018-19 and 2019-20 in due course.
