Final chance to weigh in on Gloucestershire budget

Time is running out for people to have their say on Gloucestershire County Council's proposed budget for the coming year.

Feedback on the 2021/22 draft budget, which covers plan for more than £480million, is open to 5pm on Friday.

Leader of the council Councillor Mark Hawthorne said: "We're encouraging everyone in Gloucestershire to take a moment to fill out our survey.

"We're proposing a budget we believe strikes the right balance between investing where it is needed in the here and now and planning for Gloucestershire's future.

"The decisions the council makes will have an impact on all those who live and work here, so your feedback is vital to help shape these plans."

The budget proposes to raise around £6million to help fund services through a 1.99 per cent increase in Council Tax and is also looking to apply the national social care precept at 2.76 per cent to raise an additional £8.6million.

The changes would result in about a £5 monthly increase for the average Band D taxpayer.
