Budget saving proposals - have your say
In December 2015, Newport City Council received
confirmation that it would be facing a reduction in its 2016/17 Welsh
Government revenue settlement grant.
This is the budget awarded
to councils, enabling them to deliver their services. It accounts for
roughly 80 per cent of the council’s overall budget, with the
remainder coming from council tax and other grants and charges.
Residents are being asked for their views on the
budget - the consultation will run from Friday 18 December 2015 until
Friday 22 January 2016.
