Liverpool City Council – Budget 2023/24

Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet will meet on Thursday 24 November to discuss the budget options for 2023/24.

We have to close a financial gap of £73 million, and that will mean difficult decisions being made.

You have told us what you want from your city council – better local services and a council that provides value for money.

We need to make wholesale changes to deliver this within the budget we have available to us.

Due to the squeeze on public spending and rising costs and a lack of modernisation to date, we have to be radical and think differently about how we deliver services. Going on as we are, is not an option.

If the options we have put forward are agreed to, we are confident that the 2023/24 budget will set us on a much surer financial footing for the years ahead.

It is about building a different kind of council with the resources we have, one which invests in modernising its services, so that you, our residents, do better, feel happier and achieve more.

It has been designed to help us move on from the past and start the next chapter with the people we serve.

We will let you know the details of the options when they are public on Wednesday evening.
