(adapted from an email from Edinburgh Council. NB this is an Edinburgh Council exercise, but LCCC is happy to disseminate information that will affect its citizens.)
Edinburgh Council is asking for feedback on its initial ideas for meeting the continuing pressures on Council services and budgets.
Since 2012 Edinburgh Council has saved £240 million, but it expects it will need to save at least £106 million more between now and 2022/23.
No decisions have been taken yet and feedback will shape the long-term plans as well as the more detailed proposals for balancing the budget in February for 2019/20.
Please complete the online survey or try your hand at prioritising services and balancing our budgets by 7 December. You can also read Edinburgh Council’s ideas Planning for change and delivering services and fill in a print survey which will be available in libraries and Council offices from 15 October.
Please share this information far and wide.
