We are consulting from 20 October to 1 December 2023.  Please note that if we receive any consultation responses after this date we cannot guarantee that we will be able to take them into account.

We will feed back the findings from our consultation to our county councillors as part of the evidence they will use to help them come to a decision about our budget proposals.

What happens next

How we will make our decision and report back to you

We will take a report about the findings of this consultation to the Council Cabinet in January 2024.  We will set a new budget on 20 February 2024.

Our county councillors will consider the consultation responses we receive very carefully. In particular, they will take into account:

  • The impact of any proposal on individuals, groups or communities and in particular on people identified as having 'protected characteristics' under the Equality Act 2010. The protected characteristics are: age; disability; gender reassignment; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex; and sexual orientation.  As well as this equality impact assessment, councillors will consider the impact of proposals on rural areas
  • The views of people and stakeholders consulted
  • The evidence of need and what is proven to work effectively and well
  • The financial and legal positions and any constraints at the time
  • Any potential alternative options, models or ideas for making the savings.


  • All Areas
