The ‘Your Council, Your Voice’ public consultation was launched in September 2015 to help the Council identify savings of £9.6 million which must be made by 2017/18.
During the nine week consultation residents, local businesses, staff and voluntary organisations were invited to tell the Council where we should invest; how services could be run differently and how communities can help us keep Calderdale a fantastic place – all in the context of a further 12% cut in government funding by 2017/18 and at least another £20 million savings by 2018/19… find out what people thought…
All the comments and data which people have submitted during the consultation are available to view on the Council’s website at www.calderdale.gov.uk. The responses will help to inform the budget savings discussions as the Council begins to prepare the formal budget proposals.
