Talk about the budget

Talk Budget

These web pages have been provided to explain the budget setting process for 2018/19.

In autumn 2016 we asked ‘what matters to you?’ and 600 of you took part, helping to shape our budget proposals.

The City Mayor responded to your priorities by investing more money in street cleansing and youth services. We have continued to look at what you said mattered most to you when looking at how we can use the resources we have available. Find out more about what we have done.

Due to continued reductions in government funding and increases in costs we now have to plan how to balance our books in 2018/19. We will have to make £11.2 million of budget savings.

We are now sharing with you how we propose to make those savings so that you can look at them and give your ideas about things we can do differently. Please see a summary of the budget proposals in the document below.
