Have your say on the Council’s budget proposals for 2017/18
Nottingham City Council planned its next budget against a backdrop of £82m of cuts to its Government Revenue Support Grant (RSG) over the last four years and a national shift towards local taxpayers footing the bill for services. Shifting the burden to local taxpayers includes the Government’s proposed additional 3% social care precept (raising an extra £3m) as a way to partly address the funding crisis in providing care for the elderly. However, over £10m extra is needed to deal with the extra pressures on the social care budget in the coming year.
The Council has made over £200m in savings over the last six years and needs to save a further £27m for 2017/18 and another £19m up to 2020. Once again the Council is looking to protect key services such as children’s centres, tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, keeping Nottingham as the UK’s cleanest city and protecting children an supporting vulnerable elderly people.
We asked citizens to have their say on the budget proposals by completing the following survey.
The results and findings from this consultation are expected 03 April 2017.
