Last Chance To Have A Say On Budget Proposals
Caerphilly county borough residents have until this Saturday 14th January to have their say on the council’s draft budget proposals for the forthcoming year.
While Caerphilly County Borough Council has to make savings totalling £8.653 million for 2017/18, the vast majority of the proposed savings will have no direct impact on the public. They will mostly be ‘back room’ savings achieved through vacancy management, budget realignment and minor changes to service provision.
The council’s Cabinet has also recently announced plans to introduce a 1% increase in council tax next year (2017/18). The proposed rate would equate to an increase of just 19p per week for an average band D property.
The budget consultation closes on 14th January with the final budget for 2017/18 being agreed at a meeting of Council on 22nd February 2017.
Details of the savings proposals along with a feedback form can be found on the council’s website and responses can be submitted online. Alternatively printed copies can be requested from the council’s Communications Unit on 01443 864354.
Completed surveys can be dropped off at any CCBC library, leisure centre, customer service centre or housing office. Alternatively they can be posted to: CCBC Communications Unit, Penallta House, Tredomen Business Park, Hengoed, CF82 7PG
