Cotswold District Council 2023/2024 Budget Consultation – Have your say!

Have your say on the Cotswold District Council’s Budget Consultation for the 2023/2024 financial year.

Residents and businesses in the Cotswolds are being urged to give their views on the Council’s spending plans as it prepares its budget for the next financial year. The focus of the budget will be on continuing to deliver services as running costs increase as a result of Putin’s war in Ukraine and the national economic situation.

The Council is keen to gather residents’ views on key areas in the proposed council budget including council tax levels and charges in Cotswold District car parks to help fund local services and to hear your suggestions about how it could raise additional revenue or lower its costs.

As part of the consultation, the Council will hold a series of engagement events at supermarkets across the district so residents can speak with Council members and officers and ask any questions they may have about the Council or its finances.

The budget consultation survey started on Tuesday 8 November and will be live on the Cotswold District Council website at until Friday 9 December.

More information about the Council’s priorities and Council Tax are available on the Cotswold District Council website.

Note: Cotswold District Council receives only 7 pence in every £1 of Council Tax paid by its residents to provide the services it is responsible for.
