Our Spending Choices

Our Budget Challenge 2017/18 - the 2016 consultation

The council’s first ‘Shaping our Future’ consultation was held between February and November 2016, and included a Citizen’s Panel survey (April 2016) and ‘Choices for Change’ survey (October to November 2016).

Although the savings options presented in ‘Choices for Change’ did not fully mirror those in the 2017 consultation, there are sufficient similarities in this, and in the Citizen’s Panel survey, to make it worthwhile reviewing the key findings from 2016 alongside those of the 2017 consultation.
