Let's Talk Some More' budget consultation
Cheshire West and Chester Council is consulting with the public on its budget plans for 2017-18 from 21 November 2016 to 2 January 2017
In 2015 Cheshire West and Chester Council undertook an extensive consultation exercise 'Let's Talk' which invited the public to shape its plans for the next four years.
The consultation covered the Council Plan for 2016-17 — 2019-20 and accompanying budget package and resulted in the adoption of a four year council plan and a budget based on 10 key priorities.
As the Council now moves towards finalising a detailed budget package for 2017-18 it is seeking the public's views to make sure it is still on track to deliver the priorities in line with the original four year plan.
The 'Let's Talk Some More' booklet has been published on the Council's website today providing a progress update on the development of the budget for 2017-18 and inviting views from the public on the priorities and direction of the Council.
The consultation document, online form and details of the other ways that people can share their views can be found at the following link:
The consultation is running from 21 November 2016 to 2 January 2017 and the feedback will be taken into consideration in advance of Members considering the final budget package for 2017-18 at Council on 23 February 2017.
