Time running out on budget consultation
Published on Monday, 7th October 2019
Hambleton residents and business owners have just two weeks left to have their say on what the district council should be looking to spend its money on – and on the levels of council tax it levies.
The authority has embarked on a budget consultation exercise to find out what people think of the council’s current priorities, its council tax and its proposals to improve services and increase efficiency.
In February 2020, the council has to approve a budget and, to help inform that decision, residents are encouraged to have their say on where the council’s funds should be used to support services.
The consultation can be accessed below or by collecting a paper copy from the council offices in Northallerton, Easingwold or Stokesley, Springboard Business Centre in Stokesley, Evolution Business Centre in Northallerton, libraries in Bedale, Easingwold, Great Ayton, Northallerton, Stokesley and Thirsk and all council run leisure centres in Northallerton, Bedale, Stokesley and Thirsk and Sowerby. They must be completed and returned by 25 October.
