Birmingham City Council - Budget Consultation 2017+

Closed 18 Jan 2017

Opened 8 Dec 2016


Birmingham City Council’s vision for the future is for a city of growth in which every child, citizen and place matters. And, in planning our budget for 2017–18, every view matters.

We need to make big savings as well as big plans because of the unprecedented financial challenges we face. So we want to know if we’re making the right choices for you and your family.

The council faces reductions in government grant, an increase in costs and increased demand for services especially for adult social care and care for our children.  

Our budget consultation paper sets out the proposals we have come up with to meet this challenge (the paper can be found in the 'related documents' section below.

This online survey includes questions about:

•           Which services are important to you.

•           Your views on next year’s rate of Council Tax.

You can choose whether to comment on all questions, or just those you select.

Specific groups of service users will also be consulted where appropriate.
