Council Message

Dear Parent / Carer

Since 2012 the Council has saved £240 million through service transformation and efficiencies, but expects it will need to save a further £106 million between now and 2022/23.

Planning for change, delivering services 2019-2023 was published in September and sets out initial ideas for meeting the continuing pressures on services and budgets. We are seeking the views of all residents on these ideas.

No decisions have been taken yet and feedback will shape the long-term plans as well as the more detailed proposals for balancing the budget in February for 2019/20.

There are a number of ways you can get involved by 7 December:

We recognise you will have many competing priorities but would appreciate any feedback to help inform the emerging strategy.

Best wishes,

Laurence Rockey

Head of Strategy and Communications
