Help Craven District Council

We Recieved this communication from Craven District Council asking for help and participation:

Craven District Council – Your Money, Your say! – Budget Consultation 2017/18

The Council has begun the process of setting its budget for the 2017/2018 financial year.    This will be approved in  February 2017.

The Challenge

In 2016/2017 the Council has received £698,000 in Revenue Support Grant from Central Government.  By 2019/2020 this will be reduced to £0.

Due to this and other cost pressures such as rising prices and increases in demand for services we will need to save a further £1.029 million from our revenue budget by 2019/2020.    At least £626,000 of this will need to be saved in 2017/2018.

We want to know your views on how we spend your money and you think we should make the savings we need to 

The easiest way to give us your views is by completing our Your Money, Your Say! Online Survey

The consultation will closes at midnight on Friday 4th November 2016 so please respond by this date.
