Bristol City Council (BCC) has published ‘Tough Times, High Hopes’ – its Corporate Strategy and budget consultation for 2018 – 19. In it, BCC is proposing savings to address its £108m budget gap for the next 5 years, and it is asking Bristolians to give their feedback.
The ‘Tough Times, High Hopes’ consultation includes draft proposals which outline ways to make the £52m of savings required next year (2018/19). Through it people are able to give their feedback on these, as well as Council Tax and Adult Social Care levy proposals. However, it is not all about cuts – the council is proposing ways to increase its income too.
