In 2016-17, local authorities were offered a multi-year settlement deal, which was accepted by 97 per cent of authorities in exchange for publishing efficiency plans, as the Government recognised that this can provide greater certainty of income over the medium term to support service delivery plans. The arrangements for the 2020-21 settlement will be subject to the timing and duration of the planned Spending Review.
