Birmingham City Council - Budget Consultation 2018+

Closed 15 Jan 2018

Opened 12 Dec 2017

Overview

We have a Vision for Birmingham to make it a city of inclusive growth where the opportunities and benefits of progress and investment are felt by all.

Since 2010 the Council has had to make cuts of over £642m and we know that we need to go further if we are to tackle the challenges facing the public sector. We face huge decisions, but there are also opportunities for us to look at how we can better deliver our services to suit the changing needs of our citizens. Your views really do matter when we make these tough decisions.

Our budget consultation document sets out how we plan to tackle the challenges facing the council and where we will focus the budget we have in order to continue to make a positive difference.

We want to hear your views on our latest budget – 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.
