Residents have been invited to join Peterborough City Council’s budget conversation to make their views heard about the local authority’s spending plans.

People can take part in the conversation by visiting the council’s website at www.peterborough.gov.uk.

Hard copies of the document and questionnaire are available to collect from Town Hall and Bayard Place receptions and each of the city’s libraries.

Cllr David Seaton, cabinet member for resources, said: “The phase two budget proposals amount to £8.2million and are in addition to the £16.6million savings that were agreed by council in December.

“We do have very little room for manoeuvre because of the scale of the funding challenge that we face, however it is so important we hear and understand people’s views so that we can try and reflect these in the final budget.

The council will consider the phase two proposals, along with the level of council tax, 4 March.
