Budget consultation for 2013/14

Background

Vale of White Horse District Council asked for your views about how it spends its budget in 2013/14.

Feedback was invited on how you think the Council should prioritise and how the Council should spend funds in these financially uncertain times. 

Those responding to the survey were asked for feedback on the scheme introduced last year to give two hours free parking in Council car parks. Other topics included investment in promoting sport and physical activity, and whether the Council should use powers to change the amount of Council Tax paid on properties such as empty and second homes. 

As part of the consultation the Council also carried out a workshop with members of its Residents’ Panel to discuss issues in depth.

The following document provides background information about council finances.

Information about what you told us and the budget decisions taken in response will be made available on our web pages.
