Newcastle City Budget 2016/17 Consultation

Newcastle Council are again planning to cut services to you, the public whilst maintaining the same number of councillors to complain about it. If you want to express your views on their decisions you can do by going to this web page https://letstalknewcastle.co.uk/ Full details of their plans to increase your Council Tax for the second year running (not for social care, for their spends), can be found on this site http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/news-story/ambition-face-austerity. The current Government have inherited a broken down economy, putting the wheels back on and getting the engine going is going to take time, but Newcastle Council are not helping its residents by making a slowly improving situation harder through the choices it makes in this proposal.
