PEOPLE across the city have been having their say on how Gloucester City Council spends its money over the next financial year.

The budget consultation will run until January 22. The responses will then be given to councillors before the budget setting meeting on February 27.

Cuts of up to £3.86million over the next two years have been proposed. Councillor Fred Wood, cabinet member for resources, said: “The city council has already made significant savings in recent years and the savings required in the years ahead will be challenging.

“Our approach will continue to be one of protecting front-line services as best as we can, but we really need your views to ensure we make the right decisions on behalf of the city.”

Residents can pick up a questionnaire from the city council offices, GL1, Oxstalls Sports Park, the Guildhall, or at the City or Folk museums.

To ensure everyone has their say customer services staff are asking those who ring the city council if they would like to take part over the phone.

The questionnaire can also be found at the Gloucester City Council website.

    I doubt that the council will anything that's not on their wish list and any "consultation" is just false window dressing.

    It's not a true consultation. The possibilities are limited to what the council wants to hear, not necessarily what people want to tell them. A tick-box exercise as per usual.
