Budget consultation - feedback
Earlier in the year we carried out our 2013 budget consultation through an online questionnaire, a questionnaire sent out to our citizens' panel and a number of public meetings.
The online consultation ran from 26 November 2012 to 4 February 2013. There were 163 responses. The citizens panel was undertaken in the same time period and there were 1,212 completed questionnaires returned. This gives a response rate of 60 per cent.
Thank you to everyone who completed the questionnaires and / or attended the meetings. Your opinions are very useful to us when we are making difficult decisions about financing our services.
Our responses to your views
We asked for your views on a number of topics including council tax, our approaches to savings and to what extent you would agree with spending reductions in a number of areas. The budget consultation - feedback document [101kb] provides a summary of what you said and our responses to the points you made.
