We asked

As part of the development and testing of options for the 2018/19 budget, we ran a budget conversation between December 2017 and February 2018 with local people and partner organisations.

The responses we received has helped us to ensure that the proposals we are putting forward, have been shaped by people who may be affected by decisions taken as part of the budget, and that they have had an opportunity to put forward ideas for consideration.

We did


We want to hear from residents and businesses to help us decide spending priorities so that we can set the Council’s budget for the next year (April 2018 to March 2019).  To help inform our approach to the budget, we also want to hear about your experiences of using services in Sheffield.

As well as this survey, we are holding public meetings across the city where you can learn more about the Council’s budget and ask questions of senior Councillors and Council officers.

Our budget consultation runs from Monday 11th December 2017 until Friday 19th January 2018. There will also be more detailed consultations conducted with service users on specific proposals – which will also contribute to the decision making process. The results of the consultation will then be considered and reviewed before final decisions are made on the 2018-19 Budget in by Full Council in March 2018.

Information on the Budget and how it works are available at the links below.
