What happens to my responses?

Public consultation ends on 31 January 2020. All responses will be anonymised, collated and analysed. The Mayor will be involved in reviewing all the responses and will take them into account in the final budget report, which will be considered by elected members at the Executive meeting on 18 February 2020 and then by full Council on 26 February 2020.

Full Council approval is required in order for the budget for 2020/21 to be adopted.
