Your services, your say: give your views on how we should manage and prioritise our finances during 2019-20.
By the end of the decade, our spending power will have fallen by 34 per cent. Although demand for council services has increased, the funding we receive from central government has reduced significantly.
Further funding cuts mean we’re now facing more difficult decisions on how we can make additional savings and prioritise spending on services whilst also protecting the most vulnerable people in North Yorkshire. The projected budget shortfall of almost £200m by 2021-22 has been met in part by achieving £157m of savings so far. However, a further £40m will need to be found to meet the remaining funding gap.
With this challenge in mind we want your views on how we manage our budget for 2019-20.
