We are challenging you to balance the budget
Since 2010 we have had to reduce our budget by more than £184 million, which means for every pound we spent in 2010, we will have only 60 pence to spend in 2020.
Why is this the case?
Future funding patterns are uncertain. Changes to business rates and reductions in government grants, as well as the uncertainty of Brexit, mean our long-term planning is more difficult. That is why this year we are choosing not to consult on a line by line list of service changes.
How can you help?
Instead, at this stage, we are asking people and businesses to describe their priorities for spending the money that is available by balancing the budget.
