Council consults on budget plans

Bolton Council is consulting residents on its plans for the 2017 – 2019 budget.

The council plans to support the budget through the use of £30m of its revenue reserves.

 However, the council would still have to find £12.5m over two years and has put forward a series of proposals for saving this money.

Residents can have their say on these proposals by visiting www.bolton.gov.uk/consultations

They can also attend a public meeting in the Albert Halls on Tuesday January 10 at 12pm, where there will be a presentation on the council’s budget plans.

Councillor Cliff Morris, Leader of Bolton Council said: “We plan to support the budget using £30m of money from reserves, which will allow us to bridge the funding gap whilst we continue to bring in new businesses and jobs to Bolton.

This approach would also allow us to continue to maintain and redesign frontline services, whilst still protecting the most vulnerable.

Whilst we will still have to make savings of £12.5m over two years across the council, we hope to achieve these savings without any compulsory redundancies and we welcome residents viewpoints on how we can make these savings in the future.”
