Budget Consultation Findings


Councillor Phil Davies introduced a report that informed the Cabinet that the Council was required to make significant budget savings over the coming five years.  On 18 December 2015 the Council had commenced consultation with staff, residents and other stakeholders on a series of savings proposals. Councillor Davies was grateful to all the local people who had taken the time to complete the consultation questionnaire.  He thanked them for their help as well as stakeholders and the three Policy and Performance Committees and the staff who had been involved.


The report also provided the Cabinet with the feedback from the consultation process for noting and for consultation when proposing the Council budget for 2016/17.  It included Elected Member feedback from a series of budget feedback workshops.

Appendix 1 – Detailed Consultation Findings
