Would you like to get involved with how Enfield Council spends its money? Then go online and tell us your views using our special ‘budget simulator’.

The simulator, which can be found online, gives you the chance to see the services that Enfield Council currently spends its money on, including those that must be provided to protect vulnerable children and the elderly. The simulator then provides you with budget information that allows you to decide where you think less money should be spent to save £30m, and the consequences of your choices. By taking part you will be having a say on the future of your council.
 
Cllr Andrew Stafford, Cabinet Member for Finance for Enfield Council said “By 2017/18 Enfield’s funding from central government will have been reduced by an additional 25%, meaning that like most local authorities Enfield Council is facing its toughest financial challenge to date.
 
“”Despite having already made £75m of cuts over the last four years while still protecting services, continued funding restrictions and increasing cost pressures mean that Enfield Council now needs to find at least a further £60m in savings.
 
“This is where you come in. We are keen to know people’s views about what services are important to them, and where they believe cutbacks can be made. By going online and using our budget simulator you get to tell us what you want, and how we can deliver that.”
