Budget consultation set to begin

Liverpool City Council is set to begin a public consultation on its budget for 2021/22.

The local authority currently estimates that it will need to find £15.4 million in budget savings in 2021/22.

This is in addition to the circa £450 million reduction in its annual spending since 2010.

The consultation will include a questionnaire together with key information about the proposed changes to services.

It will be targeted at service users or stakeholder organisations affected by the proposals as well as with residents at a wider level, to ensure all options have been considered.

The public consultation on the draft budget proposals will run until 13 February 2021, during which time responses to the consultation questionnaire can be made.

Following the public consultation, the budget will be finalised, approved by Cabinet and recommended to a Full Council Budget Meeting on 3 March 2021.
