Stocksbridge Residents – have your say on how you think the Councils 2018/19 Budget should be spent – 23rd Jan 2018, Stocksbridge Library

22 Jan

budget stocks

The final council budget for the year 2018/19 will be agreed in March but there is still time for local people to have their say on how money should be spent and share their ideas on how savings can be made.

Councillor Olivia Blake, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance said: “We are living in a difficult economic climate. There is more demand for our services but less money to spend.

“Between 2011/12 and 2017/18 we have had to save £390 million. Over the same period we have seen our grant funding reduced by 45%. For the coming year we have to find further savings of £30 million because of the austerity measures forced upon us by central government.

“At the moment our plans include increasing the council tax by at least 52 pence per week, for most households, to pay for social care, as 95% of councils have already done. But even this additional funding will not be enough to meet the demand.

“If anyone has an idea or an opinion on how we can make further savings we want to hear from them. Equally we want to know what people think of the services we already provide, and tell us what they think the priorities for the future should be”.

Anyone who wishes to get involved in the challenge of setting the budget can complete a survey at, www.sheffield.gov.uk/budget or attend a public meeting.

The ‘Budget Conversation’, which started last month with the launch of an online survey, is now going on the road and local people are invited to attend public meetings to share their opinions and give advice to the people who will be making the decisions, Cabinet Members from Sheffield City Council.

Join in next years budget conversation

13 Dec

Sheffielders are being asked to give their views on council services and where money should be allocated as part of Sheffield City Council’s budget conversation.

The council faces increasing demand for services, including adults’ and children’s social care, on top of cuts from central Government following seven years of austerity. Its plans include adding a three per cent social care precept to next year’s council tax bills, as 95 per cent of councils did this year. This will equate to an extra 52p per week for most households – however, even with this additional funding, this will not cover all of the extra demand for social care.

From Monday 11 December, people are asked to complete a survey online. A printed version of the budget survey is also available on request by emailing Budget2018-19@sheffield.gov.uk or phoning 0114 293 0239. Public events will also be held across the city in the New Year where people can find out more and have their say.

Councillor Olivia Blake, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance at Sheffield City Council, said: “Next year we’re expecting to have to make further savings of more than £30 million. At the same time, demand for our services is increasing.

“We want to make sure people have the chance to tell us their priorities and where they think the opportunities are to invest or save more.

“We’ve been put in financial stranglehold by the Government cuts and need to continue to provide essential services, including to the most vulnerable in our city.

“Please get involved and have your say.”

People can take the survey online at www.sheffield.gov.uk/budget  Information about the public events will be publicised in January.

Sheffield City Council’s final budget for 2018/19 will be agreed in March 2018, including decisions about council tax levels.

West Street and Devonshire Green Improvement Consultation – We need your views

8 Nov

West Street and Devonshire Green are popular parts of the city centre and attract people looking to shop in one of the many boutique or independent retailers, or enjoy the bars and restaurants that have made it a lively part of town.

As part of its ongoing plans to improve the area, and to tackle concerns expressed by local residents and health and welfare groups that too many licenced premises are contributing to more crime and anti-social behaviour, the council is encouraging people to spend a few minutes giving their views.

If you would like to give your views, you can do so here:  https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-business-strategy/cumulative-impact-policy/

Sheffield City Council – Tenant’s and residents Community Engagement Review (closes 31st Oct 2017)

20 Oct

Overview

We are suggesting making a number of changes to the way we work with tenants and residents by:

  • Encouraging local and individual involvement with fewer formal meetings.
  • Providing more opportunities on-line for people to get involved.
  • Offering a clearer funding package for TARAs and local community groups.
  • Working together with tenant groups, Local Councillors and other partners to achieve better outcomes.

It is important that we talk to you and involve you in developing our services.  As a landlord, we have a duty to consult with you on issues relating to your tenancy.

We also work with other providers, such as housing associations and private landlords, so it is important that we know what people living around Sheffield feel about their housing.  We need to do this in the best way that we can using the money we have available.  We think that these changes will improve the way we do this and allow more voices to be heard.
