Residents Invited To Give Their Views On Council’s Budget Priorities

Stephen Parnaby

A workshop is to be held in November in order to give residents their say on how the council prioritises its annual budget.

It will take place on Thursday, 24 November at East Riding Leisure on and members of the public will be able to air their views.

The workshop will start at 10am and those attending will get the opportunity to speak to representatives from the council, including Councillor , OBE, leader of the council, as well as directors and senior officers.

For those who are unable to attend but would still like to make their views known, they can do so via an online survey which will be launched on the council’s website in late October.

Councillor Parnaby said: “The financial squeeze is affecting everyone, including the council, who still have some tough financial decisions to make over the coming years which will, no doubt, have an impact on residents.

“The budget event and online survey is an important way for the public to let us know what they think, what’s important to them and where they feel our spending should be prioritised.

“Those attending the workshop will hear about the financial pressures the council is facing and how we are trying to deliver top-quality services on an ever-tightening budget.

“I think it’s important to involve residents in the budget setting process and to take on-board their views.

“The budget consultation has always been popular and I would urge to take this opportunity, be it at the event or via the online survey, to get in touch and let us know their views.”

Anyone who would like to attend the budget event can complete the form via the website – www.eastriding.gov.uk/budgetform or alternatively complete the form.

Space is limited so places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
