Spending Power figures are not available for 2009-10 and from 2010-11 to 2014-15 they were not compiled on a consistent basis.
Between 2015-16 and 2019-20 the average Core Spending Power per Dwelling for England is broadly flat and will be £1,872 in 2019/20. Over the same period Bournemouth's Core Spending Power per dwelling will increase from £1,513 to £1,527 which is equivalent to 0.9%.
