Spending Power is our best measure of the resources which local authorities can access each year. The definition of Spending Power is not comparable over the period 2010-11 to 2020-21 due to changes in the finance and function of local government. A consistent measure of Core Spending Power is however available for the period 2015-16 to 2020-21. Please see a link to the CSP table on the Gov Website (attached): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/core-spending-power-final-local-government-finance-settlement-2020-to-2021 The full table is under ‘supporting information’.
