Leicestershire consults public on saving £100m

Leicestershire County Council is asking the public to have their say on how it can save £100m – a third of its budget – over the next five years.

The council is running an online survey to find out what taxpayers think its priorities should be.

Deputy leader and finance spokesman, Byron Rhodes, said it was ‘inevitable’ that the council would need to provide services in different ways given the continued reductions from Government and the rising demand for services.

‘That’s why it’s so important that people take part in our consultation, to help us to develop our future direction,’ Mr Rhodes said.

The council, which has already saved £63m in the last three years, is considering developing alternative services jointly with other authorities and agencies. It is also looking at adopting a service commissioning approach and reducing services.
