Each year we review our Medium Term Financial Strategy to make sure that we use our resources as best we can. The Budget Book is our published plan of all income and expenditure for the financial year in question.
The annual report is a self-assessment of how we performed in the past year against the Corporate Plan and the Medium Term Financial Strategy. It has views from external auditors and inspectors, as well as feedback from residents.

A law called the Wellbeing of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 was introduced in 2016. It created goals for each authority to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural wellbeing of their area. The Act will make the public bodies listed in the Act:
- think more about the long term
- work better with people and communities and each other
- look to prevent problems
- take a more joined-up approach
This new law will mean that public bodies listed in the Act must now work in a sustainable way.
The Act puts in place seven well-being goals to make sure we are all working towards the same vision. In order to achieve these, the Act places a legal requirement on the Welsh ministers to set national indicators as a way of measuring progress.
