Abstract

Provides evidence to show the budget‐setting process in local authorities is incremental in nature. Planned programmed budgeting systems and zero based budgeting systems do not appear to have a place in local authority decision making largely because the process is a political one and is perceived to be overwhelmingly complex. Based on studies of the budgeting process in three local authorities.
