SALFORD COUNCIL BUDGET CONSULTATION
 

Star date: 11th November 2011

YOUR CHANCE TO TELL SALFORD COUNCIL HOW TO SPEND 

Salford Council is currently running its annual online budget consultation which only gives three options for each of the departments it runs – cut, keep it the same or cut something else instead.

But what if everyone told Salford Council not to cut anything at all? Would the Council listen?

Salford Council is currently running its online Hobson's Choice budget consultation for the next financial year – 2012/13. At the top of the page it states starkly… "We would like to know which services you would be most willing to consider for a reduction in spending. This may mean fewer people receive the service or we change how we deliver the service to create savings"… and turkeys vote for Christmas!

There are only three options from which to choose in each department's spending… 

1. OK to cut – in the current climate it is acceptable to cut funding
2. Do not cut – it is very important that this service remains how it is now
3. Do not cut – I would rather other services be cut to maintain this service at its current level.

So what if everyone chose Option 2 - `Do not cut'? Would Salford Council actually listen?

There is also a box where people can give the Council ideas for saving money – things like less consultants, less hand-outs for Peel Holdings and stuff like that.

These consultations usually get very few responses so here's a chance to make views known.

Is this just a box ticking exercise or will Salford Council actually act on its citizen's views? We urge everyone to fill the consultation in and we'll find out when the results are known – provided the Council makes them publicly available of course…

The Budget Consultation is open until November 25th and there are paper copies at libraries and other Council buildings.

Click here for the online form – it takes about three minutes to fill in…
