Cheshire East Council has published a budget report that starts a conversation with residents and other stakeholders about its financial plans for the next three years.
Its Pre-Budget Consultation 2018-21 sets out initial proposals for how the council could target resources more effectively and save money — while achieving a balanced budget.
It includes a proposal to earmark £2m from the New Homes Bonus scheme which communities would decide how to spend, according to their own priorities.
Cheshire East will now invite feedback from residents, businesses, councillors, staff, town and parish councils and other stakeholders to inform decisions. This consultation will be an ongoing process over the next three years.
