Have your say on Norfolk County Council’s budget proposals
You can have your say on Norfolk County Council’s budget proposals, as consultation starts on next year’s spending plans.
Consultation on the council’s proposed share of Council Tax and its savings proposals will take place up until 14th December, at www.norfolk.gov.uk/budget .
Cabinet member for finance, Councillor Andrew Jamieson, encouraged people to take part in the consultation, to help the council shape its priorities at a time of “almost unprecedented risk and uncertainty.”
He said: “The council must now plan for the ‘triple whammy’ impacts of rising budget pressures, uncertainty over Government funding, and the financial challenges associated with COVID-19.”
