Northumberland County Council 2022-23 Budget Consultation

Residents are being encouraged to have their say on county council budget proposals for next year.

Each year the council must set a balanced budget, which sets out funding for its services as well as its plans for investing.  The budget must also take account of new cost-pressures as well as making sure all its services are as efficient as possible.  

From Friday, December 10 until the 21 of January 2022 people can give their views on a wide range of issues online by clicking here.

Alongside thoughts on the council’s spending plans, it also wants to hear the public's views on the impacts of Covid and what they feel are the most important things the council can do to help recovery.

As part of the consultation the council is also planning an online event in the New Year where residents can ask the leader of the council questions around its services and the budget.

The council’s budget consultation runs for six weeks until 21 January 2022 and is due to go before Full Council in February 2022.
