Deadline for your views on the 2014/15 proposals : 20 December - email us now or fill in the survey
All councils are facing pressures on the money we have to spend and increased demand on services. The Council's funding is not increasing but the cost to provide services is. We need to save £36 million in 2014/15 and £120 million by 2017/18.
Let’s look at where we’re spending, saving and delivering services differently. We'll give you an overview of our priorities, highlighting the services where we propose to save money and where we want to spend more. We would like you to tell us if you agree or have different ideas for 2014/15 and for the next three years.
The Council’s draft budget proposals were published in a report to Finance and Budget Committee, five months before the Council's budget is agreed in February 2014. This is earlier than normal, giving councillors more time to discuss the proposals with people in the city and listen to your feedback.
Councillors will be meeting with residents, local, other interest groups and Council staff between October and 20 December 2013. More details of meetings will be published here as they are arranged.
