Have Your Say

Our budget consultation, which closed on 18 November, set out what we are thinking about doing to achieve the necessary savings in 2012/13.

Our approach has four key strands:
1. improving efficiency
2. reducing staff costs
3. more focused services
4. increased income

The consultation survey results are published below.

Results Summary

THE 673 people who participated in the consultation have shown general support for the majority of our budget savings proposals.

The online survey attracted 596 submissions, more than twice as many as last year, and was completed by 154 residents, 237 members of the Angus Citizens’ Panel and 205 council employees. In addition 77 people from the Angus Citizens’ Panel and local community councils took part in three focus groups, where the proposals were discussed and then voted on. The focus group for community councils attracted nine members and 68 people attended the two focus groups for citizens’ panel members.

In summary there was general support for the budget proposals other than those to slow down roads maintenance and reduce the number of visiting specialist teachers (music, art and PE) in primary schools.

The feedback from the consultation is now being considered by the council and will help to inform the council’s 2012/13 budget, which will be set in February.
