Views sought on Rotherham Council’s budget proposals

31st October 2018

People are being asked for their views on how Rotherham Council proposes to save £30 million from its budget over the next two years.

Rotherham Council has proposed a series of budget options for the next two years, 2019/20 and 2020/21, to meet a further funding shortfall of £30 million. This is on top of £177 million worth of savings made since 2010.

Further savings are needed due to ongoing reductions in funding from Government, an increasing demand for services as a result of a growing and ageing population, and increasing costs for the council in providing services.

The consultation will run from Friday 26 October until Friday 30 November 2018.

For full details and the proposed budget options visit the website here.

Informal drop in sessions have been arranged and offers the opportunity to talk to the Leader of the Council, Cllr Chris Read and senior leaders. They will be able to answer your questions about how the Council is funded and how we will work in future.
