Council Budget 2019/20- Please read this introduction first
Residents are being asked for their views on North Tyneside Council’s initial budget proposals amid unrelenting demand for services for the most vulnerable and sustained government funding reductions.
These initial budget proposals are aimed at protecting essential services that are important to residents while investing in the future of the borough, growing the local economy, and creating more jobs and opportunities - demonstrating our commitment to being an authority that works better for its residents.
The engagement process takes place from 27 November until 6 January and will involve an online survey, consultation with the residents’ panel and targeted engagement with businesses and community groups.
Please see attached link for Cabinet papers with full background information on the initial budget proposals.
There are 12 separate budget engagement surveys for you to complete, this first one asks you to comment on a rise in council tax and any ideas you may have for additional budget savings. the following 11 all ask for you comments on specific budget proposals.
All these views will be used to shape the final budget, which will be considered by Full Council in February 2019
