JANUARY 2017 NAG HOSTED OPEN MEETING
Budget Consultation - Your City Your Services
Wednesday 25 January 2017
St. Mary's Church Hall, Wollaton Hall Drive, Wollaton Park
Nottingham City Council is holding community consultation meetings on its Budget for 2017-2018 called Your City Your Services during January in order to present the proposed Nottingham City Council budget, current pressures on the City's finances and current local and national challenges. In addition, it will be an opportunity to answer any questions you may have as well as to listen to any local issues or concerns.
Government grant funding for Nottingham City Council has reduced from £126 million in 2013-2014 to £44 million in 2017-2018.
Demand for vital services, such as social care for elderly people, is increasing year on year but there has been a national shift towards local taxpayers footing the bill. The City Council has had to make over £200 million in savings over the last six years and needs to make a further £27 million as part of budget proposals for 2017/18.
The Council would like to know what you think: your opinions matter. Please come along to the meeting and presentation to have your say.
There will be a presentation by Councillor Webster. WELA Ward Councillors Sally Longford and Sam Webster will be there to talk to you and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
As this meeting covers a wider area, other ward Councillors may also be present. This meeting is being hosted with NAG (Nottingham Action Group on HMOs) and may include other agenda items. There will also be an information stall on Nottingham City Council’s Selective Licensing proposals for the private rented sector.
Everyone is welcome and refreshments will be available. If you cannot attend this meeting please see other meeting dates in other parts of the city on www.nottingham.gov.uk/budget17 and also for more information and other ways to feedback your views.
As is usual for NAG open meetings and those hosted by the NAG, in addition to Ward Councillors and Council officers, representatives from the two universities and their students' unions, Unipol and from Nottinghamshire Police will be invited to attend.
