Budget Consultation – Help us shape the future of Kirklees
We are inviting you to get involved and help us shape the future of Kirklees by having your say on our 2020-2021 budget proposals.
Investment in Kirklees
This year’s budget is planned to be one of investment in Kirklees. A careful approach to budget management in recent years has put us in a strong position to invest now in order to support the council’s ambitions.
What do existing budget plans include?
Existing budget plans include significant new investment; in particular in children’s services, adults, regeneration activity, housing growth and organisational capacity to support this approach.
3 key priority areas
We are also proposing a set of 3 key priority areas: climate change, children’s improvements and place-based working. These priorities will guide how we set our budget, shape our services and make our decisions.
Have your say
We would like to hear what you think about these priorities and your suggestions about how we can achieve them. Find out more about our priority areas and have your say.
