Budget 2012. You Choose! 

Tel:  0151 606 2030 

Email: budget2012@wirral.gov.uk  

Start date: 19th August 2011 

End date:  30th November 2011 

 

Purpose of the exercise:  

Last year, the Council lost £51 million of government funding and this year there is a ‘gap’ of £25 million between our income and projected spend.

This consultation enabled the public to have a say, and tell us how they would deal with our budget situation. People could try to balance the budget, recommend savings and suggest ways to increase income in our online budget simulator.
