Overview

Birmingham City Council needs to find ways of making further savings next year.

This means the way we deliver our services to you will have to change.

We want you to give us your views on the best way of doing this.

The online survey includes questions about all services with budget proposals but you can choose whether to comment on all of them, or just on a few.

It also asks if you think Council Tax should be increased next year and what you think of our ideas for how the Council should work in the future.

What Happens Next

All comments, along with the findings and feedback from the consultation events, will be passed to elected members. They will use this information to help them decide how Birmingham's budget should be spent in the next financial year. 

A summary will also be published on www.birmingham.gov.uk/budgetviews after the consultation has finished.
