Question

To ask the Scottish Government how much funding it has provided to Stirling Council for road maintenance in each year since 2017. 

Current status: Answered by Tom Arthur on 8 February 2022


Answer

The vast majority of funding available to councils is provided by means of a block grant from the Scottish Government. It is then the responsibility of individual local authorities to manage their own budgets and to allocate the total financial resources available to them, including on road maintenance, on the basis of local needs and priorities, having first fulfilled their statutory obligations and the jointly agreed set of national and local priorities.

It is for locally elected representatives to manage the allocation of resources and the level of services that are delivered to their local communities.
