Council Budget Consultation

 Have your say on the council’s budget

Published Date: 22 Sep 2011 - 12:30

Argyll and Bute Council’s budget consultation will run from Monday 10 October to Friday 25 November and we want to hear about the council services that are important to you.

Although the Council will not set the budget until February, by launching this consultation now your councillors have the opportunity to hear from as many people across our area as possible. This helps the decision making process which will shape how council services are delivered in the future.

Last year the consultation had a real impact on influencing where the council spent its money. You told us that you wanted more money spent on roads, education and social care which we did. In roads we agreed to invest £15m over the next three years, and we protected education and adult care with the lowest reductions in budget of 5.5% and 5.9% over three years. We also agreed to protect front line services by reducing budgets for non essential functions such as travel, subsistence, venue hire and advertising and by increasing fees and charges.

You will be able to take part in the consultation online by going to our website at www.argyll-bute.gov.uk, by attending one of our community planning events or by filling in one of the postcards which will be locally available and putting it in the suggestion box.
