Our draft Budget for 2012/13 has been approved for consultation. The Council needs to make some tough decisions . The national economy remains in a period of downturn and instability and is likely to be so for the foreseeable future. This has had repercussions locally on both residents and businesses . By giving us your views, you will help us understand how our proposals may affect you and our communities so that we can consider whether and how we can mitigate, if possible, the impact of any changes we introduce. Full Council will set its budget in February 2012.
How to take part:
- Completing an online survey (available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/nbcbudget2012 )
- Attending our Question Time event on 26 January 2012 at 18:30 hrs in the Great Hall, Guildhall, Northampton where you will be able to ask questions to a panel of senior councillors and officers.
