Hambleton District Council urges you to have your say on money and services

Ham Coun

Time is running out for Hambleton residents to have their say on how they think local budgets should be spent and which services matter the most for the 2017-18 period.

Hambleton District Council is consulting on its budget and the services it provides for next year (2017-18) and to help shape the budget proposals, the council is inviting people to have their say through this consultation until 28 October 2016.

A spokesperson for Hambleton District Council said: “While local government continues to face significant financial pressures with the Government reducing its grant funding to local authorities, Hambleton District Council aims to achieve efficiency savings to deliver a balanced budget whilst maintaining the same or an improved level of service. We’re urging people to tell us what they want.”
