Big Budget Conversation – Survey ends 24 January

Stirling Council is facing significant financial challenges in the short and medium-term future. The costs of delivering our essential services continue to increase due to inflation and service demand, and the funding to support this delivery has not kept pace. There is also greater demand on some of our key services than ever before as we work to support a growing older population, as well as respond to the global Covid-19 pandemic.  As a result the Council needs to save at least £8million to balance next year’s budget.

When it comes to setting our budget, there are increasing restrictions on the areas where we can make savings. Some of our funding is ring-fenced and some is only available to us if we maintain service levels.  

We would really appreciate your feedback via our survey to understand what your priorities are for our budget-setting next year. The survey is on our new Engage Stirling Platform and closes on Sunday 24 January 2021. Please take the time to give your views before then.
