Over 3,000 people have had their say on Leicestershire County Council’s future plans and priorities – and there’s plenty of time to join the debate. 

Residents, businesses, organisations and others can get involved by completing a short, online questionnaire and use an interactive tool enabling people to try balancing the council’s budget.  

Despite saving £200m since 2010, rising demand for services pushing up costs and uncertainty over Government funding mean Leicestershire County Council still faces a significant financial challenge.

The council needs to save another £75m over the next four years and is running a three-month consultation asking residents, businesses and partner organisations for their views on the significant financial challenge.


The 12-week exercise runs until 8 September and includes:

•             a questionnaire - sent to households in a special edition of residents’ newsletter Leicestershire Matters in June
•             an online, interactive tool enabling people to explore the council’s budget in more detail 
•             residents focus groups
•             workshops with parish councils, NHS bodies, the police, businesses and other stakeholders
•             workshops with council staff and managers 
•             stands at events across the county
