Leeds Labour Council is offering you the chance to have your say on its Budget for 2014/15 – and to find out what happened after what you said last year.
Last autumn, Leeds’ residents were asked by the Labour Council what was important to them in the council’s budget. A record number of them replied – in an online consultation ‘YouChoose’.
This information is still guiding the Council one year on as they prepare the budget for 2014/15 and beyond.
It is important to them that you can find out what’s happened since the YouChoose consultation one year ago. There’s a ‘Downloads’ section on the Consultation page.
There you can learn what they’ve been doing – how they’ve been trying to meet the challenge of delivering services in difficult financial circumstances.
Look at ‘How we listen – at a glance’ or, for an alternative version, open the ‘How we listen when You Choose’ document.
This year the Labour Council want your views again. They want to check if you think the YouChoose priorities are still the right ones, in a short questionnaire – Budget Consultation 2013.
What you tell them will help check this year’s council budget is delivering the right things, and that they have the best plans for the long-term.
The closing date for the questionnaire is Monday, 30 September 2013.
The Initial Budget Proposal will be made available from the download section on this page
in December 2013, with another chance for you to comment.
And if you don’t want to see the detail – the summary budget shows you just the headline figures.
Alex Sobel, himself a member of the Council, stresses ‘Leeds Labour Council is committed – like the Labour Party nationally – to government built from the ground up. That means from your opinions and ideas. Your contribution matters. Have your say.’
