When the Department for Communities and Local Government published the provisional local government finance settlement for English authorities in December 2015, the consultation document also described the offer of a four year funding settlement to any council that wished to take it up, alongside indicative allocations for each year of the Spending Review period, subject to authorities publishing an efficiency plan.
