Budget consultation 2018/19

Details of the consultation

We are launching the Budget Consultation for 2018/19 and we want to hear your views and priorities.

Since 2010, we have saved £161m. We need to make further £35m of savings by 2018/19.

This year, we will spend around £1bn on public services. Much of this amount is ring-fenced for spend on specific services such as schooling and housing benefit payments. As a result, we are limited as to where it can make savings; the ring-fenced budgets, accounting for over 50% of our income, cannot be touched.

In addition, an increasing population puts more strain on our services. It is estimated that Enfield’s population now stands at 330,000 and it could grow to as much as 354,300 by 2021.

While we remain committed to finding new and innovative ways of providing services to minimise the cost burden on residents, the scale of the financial challenges we face mean efficiencies are no longer enough. We want to hear your views not only on your priorities for investment and reduction but your suggestions for raising income to try and mitigate the worst impact of funding cuts and increased pressures.

Before you tell us your views, please read our leaflet Money Matters leaflet. This will help you further understand what we spent money on in 2017/18 and further details of the challenges we face.
