Council budget 2015/16

Have your say on our budget

The Council is deciding where to invest and where to save money. We want to know your views by 19 December.

The Council faces a budget challenge which affects how much money we have to invest in our services in the coming years. Between 2015 and 2018, the Council's annual budget will remain around £950 million. However the cost of providing services is expected to be £1.01 billion. We need to save £67 million from our budget, over the next three years, to make sure we can provide the services that are important to the people of Edinburgh.

You can read more information about the Council's budget in our Key Facts and Figures booklet.
