Figures show the budget gap will grow each year, over the next five years, to more than £166 million if no action is taken.
The council’s still to find where it can make savings of nearly £20 million next year.
Connect FM has been told that PCC needs to find £19.6m of savings and efficiencies to balance the budget in 2016/17.
If they took no action toward this, then further grant cuts would increase this gap to £40.3m by 2020/21 (adding all the savings up for each year from 2016/17 to 2020/21, it comes to £166m.)
The first roundof plans sets out how the council is proposing to address £12.1 million of this challenge for 2016/17, and includes no proposed reduction in services to residents.
The second, final, round of plans will look at addressing the remaining £7.51m of the £19.6m for 2016/17.
There will also be an impact on staffing.
The total number of affected posts is 12 but 4 are vacant.
