Please refer to:

Dept for Communities & Local Gov – Local Authority Revenue Expenditure 2014

Page 1 gives total revenue expenditure budgeted for 2014/5 by all councils in England as £98.8 billion

Page 17 item 570 gives amount going on street cleansing (not chargeable to Highways) as £704,562,000

Therefore % going on street cleansing is 704.5 million / 98,800 million x 100 = 0.71%

 

 Dept for Communities & Local Gov – Number of UK Households

Gives number of households in England in 2011 as 22.1 million

Theretofore expenditure per house hold = 704.5 / 22.1 = £31.9/ household per annum

 

Dept for Communities & Local Gov – Local Authority Revenue Expenditure 2010_11

Page 11 item 570 gives amount that went on street cleansing (not chargeable to Highways) as £760,208

Increase in RPI from April 2010 to April 2014 is 14.7%

Therefore at April 2010 prices expenditure in 2014/15  was £704,562,000 / 1.147 = 614,265,000

This is a fall in real terms of (760,208 – 614,265)/ 760,208 = 19,2%
