West Lancashire Borough Council is inviting community groups and local businesses to give their views on the Borough Council’s policy options for savings, efficiencies and increases in income to balance the budget for 2016/17.
The Council is facing significant financial challenges, like many councils in the country, and needs to continue to reduce spending and generate income.
The ‘Meeting the Budget’ Challenge Survey gives your organisation a chance to influence the decisions the Council will make.
To complete the survey on behalf of your organisation visit: www.westlancs.gov.uk/more/your-views/meeting-the-budget-challenge.aspx or print off the attached pdfs. The survey will take around five minutes to complete.
If members of your organisation wish to give their views as individual resident they can do so by completing the survey for residents on the council website at: www.westlancs.gov.uk/more/your-views/meeting-the-budget-challenge.aspx
If you would prefer to submit your organisation’s views by letter or email, or if you would prefer a paper version of the survey or a large-print copy, please contact Alice Cleary, Partnership and Performance Assistant: tel 01695 585380, email firstname.lastname@example.org , or in writing at West Lancashire Borough Council,
52 Derby Street, Ormskirk, L39 2DF
The deadline for submitting views is 10 January 2016. The Council will make final decisions in February 2016.
