Budget consultations

We have run a number of consultations to help the council set budgets for the next financial year.

The consultations asked people in the district how the council should prioritise its spending in years where expenditure needed to be cut.  We wanted to know what services were most important to fund, such as housing support, community grants, the provision of sports and leisure facilities and street cleaning.

Reports summarising the consultations for each financial year are available below:

2013/14

2012/13

2011/12

The next financial year is 2014/15.  The council does not intend to undertake a formal consultation for this period as we anticipate a period of financial growth that will not require us to significantly re-prioritise or cut spending.  Details of our proposals for 2014/15 can be found on our Budget Information page.
