Shaping the Future – Warwickshire County Council’s Budget Simulator

ConsultationLocal authorities up and down the country are facing extreme financial challenges over the next four years and Warwickshire County Council is not exempt.

Reductions in Government grants, inflation and demographic pressures mean we must identify savings amounting to around £92 million by 2018.  This is against a backdrop of having reduced our spending by almost £70million over the past three years.

So we want to open up a conversation with the people of Warwickshire.

Where do you think money might be saved?

What are your service priorities?

Any change in budget, even if it is small, is likely to have an effect on service delivery. We also have to make sure we meet certain statutory duties for some of the services we provide as if we don’t it could have severe consequences for us – perhaps resulting in a fine or legal action.

By using our budget simulator you can adjust spending and see the impact on other services before you submit your choices. We also want to hear any other ideas you may have on how savings should be made and these can be made below.
