Cambridgeshire: Council Budget
Cambridgeshire residents are being asked to come up with their own £848 million budget for the County Council.
A new online survey launched today (Wednesday) is designed to highlight the millions of pounds that need to be saved from Cambridgeshire County Council’s budget.
£37 million needs to be shaved off the County Council’s budget over the next financial year, after £42 million in savings was made this year.
The Council says cuts need to be made while still supporting key areas, such as adult social care, transport, and boosting Cambridgeshire’s economy.
Using the online tool, residents can make their own mock decisions on council tax and services and see what impacts these might have.
Dedicated roadshows will also be announced in future, where County Council officials will talk to residents in person.
It’s all part of a budget consultation going on until October 17th .
Cambridgeshire County Councillor Mac McGuire, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Community Engagement, said: "Councils across the land have some hard decisions to make, and we want Cambridgeshire residents to have a big say in ours.
The County Council has worked hard to be efficient and we saved £40 million last year while still investing in things residents and businesses say matter, like superfast broadband, a new station for Cambridge and improving education and skills in Fenland.
But Cambridgeshire is not immune from national budget problems or increasing demand for services."
A homeless man in Cambridge, who saw a student set fire to £20, has told Heart the 18-year-old "deserves to be kicked out of University."
Cambridgeshire & Peterborough would need £800m to perform a radical overhaul of their NHS services, according to the British Medical Association.
There has been a national public outrage against a Cambridge University student who burnt money in front of a homeless man.
