Please tell us your views on the County Council’s Strategy and 2013/14 Budget
The Council Strategy for 2011- 2014 sets out our plans for
services and spending over a four year period. These plans reflect
the changing demand for council
services, as well as the need to save £114 million.In developing our strategy we have identified three clear values to help shape our decision making, these are;
• Living within our means
• Providing good basic services
• Helping communities to help themselves
Last year we asked you to help set some key priorities that would support these values. This year we want to understand if these priorities are still important to you. We’d like to ask for your views at this stage by;
Completing our questionnaire online at
Or by collecting
a copy from your local library.
Please respond by 5pm on
Monday 17th December 2012.
