Budget Event Gives Residents The Chance To Shape Council Priorities


Residents are being invited to have their say on how the council prioritises its annual budget.

The council is keen to hear what the public has to say about the budget and now there are two ways to make those views heard.

On Thursday, 26 November, at East Riding Leisure , members of the public are invited to take part in a workshop based around the council’s budget priorities.

Starting at 10am, those attending will get the opportunity to speak to representatives from the council, including Councillor OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, directors and senior officers.

Councillor Parnaby said:

“Everybody is feeling the financial squeeze, including the council, and we have some tough financial decisions to make over the coming years which are bound to have an effect on residents.”

“The budget event and the online survey is an important way for the public to let us know what they think and how they feel the council should prioritise its spending.”

“It’s important to involve residents in the budget setting process and take on board their views and those attending the event will also hear about the financial pressure the council is under to deliver top quality services on an ever-tightening budget.”

“The event has always been popular and I would urge people to take this opportunity to get in touch and let us know their views.”

Anyone who would like to attend the budget event can register their interest by going to www.eastriding.gov.uk/budgetform; email budget.event@eastriding.gov.uk or telephone (01482) 394200.

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