Our budget - your views

WE are currently holding a budget consultation to help prioritise expenditure and make necessary savings over the next two years.

The consultation on proposed savings runs from Wednesday 12 November until Tuesday 23 December 2014 and we want to hear your views on the options for the 2015/16 budget. 

 We are seeking your views to help us finalise proposals for saving £2.5m from 2015/16 to 2017/18.  This will help Copeland to stay in line, as far as possible, with funding reductions already set out by the government.

Find out more here.
