How we spend your money - Sutton Council's Budget Constultation

Closed 4 Jan 2010

Opened 16 Nov 2009

Overview

Cutting red tape, not services, means there will be no Council tax rise in Sutton next year. Sutton Council aims to provide quality services at the right price. But we all know times are tough and there is little room for manoeuvre. Income from planning and parking has been hit by the recession while demand for other services has increased. However, we are not going to ask local people for more money when we know they can least afford it. Instead we are going to do more with less, cutting back on red tape and searching for greater efficiencies. As a result our draft budget for 2010/11 maintains our essential services and maintains our care for our most vulnerable residents.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to know what you think about the priorities we have followed when we considered how much should be spent on our services.

What Happens Next

Over the next month we will be holding focus groups with local people, voluntary groups and the organisations we work with. We will be going out and about in the borough and asking for your views. And we will be using our regular residents survey to make sure your priorities are our priorities and that you agree with how we spend your money.
