Fair funding for the Vale
The Vale of Glamorgan receives one of the lowest levels of funding from the Welsh Government.
The Vale receives £202 less per person than Cardiff, £226 less than Bridgend and £409 less than Rhondda Cynon Taff.
The needs of each Authority differ and it would be unfair to call for the same level of spend as RCT. However, Cardiff and Bridgend are better comparators, with Cardiff being one of the most prosperous parts of the UK.
In 2011/12 the difference with Cardiff was £126 and in 2010/11 it was £73. If we received the same funding per person as Cardiff, the Vale would gain an additional £25.6M to spend this year alone.
This money could finance one and a half new secondary schools – every year. Imagine the type of regeneration that could be supported in our towns and villages.
