A major consultation on Leicestershire County Council’s future plans and priorities has launched today.

Residents, staff, partner organisations and businesses are urged to have their say by completing a short questionnaire – and can also use an interactive, online tool to try balancing the council’s £370m revenue budget.

Since 2010, the council has saved £200m but increasing demand for services, plus uncertainty over Government funding, means the council needs to save another £75m over the next four years.

The questionnaire, plus supporting information, is being sent to homes across the county from 17 June in a special edition of the council’s newsletter, Leicestershire Matters – this is attached and a paper copy is being posted out to you. The questionnaire can also be completed online.

The three-month exercise also includes focus groups, stakeholder events, public events and an online, interactive tool enabling people to explore the council’s budget in more detail.
