Swift Read: A generous or a derisory local government finance settlement?

Summary

This swift read looks at the funding provided through the Scottish Local Government Finance Settlement 2021-22, focusing on the main funding streams and the impact on individual councils. It does not seek to explain the mechanics of the settlement (a swift read on that is available here), but it provides a non-technical overview and some comparisons between councils which should prove helpful.
