edinburgh budget challenge 2015

There are only two weeks left to have your say about the Council’s 2016-2020 budget proposals. This is your opportunity to let them know your views and ideas about how the City of Edinburgh Council coul save £126m, increase income and deliver services.

Find out more about the budget by visiting their website and watching the recording of the budget Question Time event where a panel of senior councillors were quizzed on the budget proposals in front of a live audience. They were asked questions on a range of topics from supporting unpaid carers, introducing a tourist tax, lobbying government to increase council tax, charging cyclists, and the trams.

Have your say by 17 December 2015 using:

  • ‘your city, your say’ dialogue page to tell them how you think we should deliver services differently, save money, and increase income, and rate and comment on other people’s suggestions too
  • online planner to tell them how you think they should deliver services.

Your feedback will help the Council to make its final budget decisions on 21 January 2016. We will keep you posted about next steps and the findings.
