A COUNCIL is asking its people to play a key role in setting its budget for next year.

For the first time Waveney District Council is launching a budget planning survey, asking for views on how it should allocate funds across the wide range of services.

Council leader Mark Bee said: “This is a real opportunity for the people of Waveney to have their say and to make a difference. Any opinions we receive will help us better shape the services our communities need.

“In this time of economic challenge, we believe that every penny must be considered carefully to best support those who rely on the services we deliver. Equally, we must spend money in a way that ensures our own financial stability for now and future generations.

“The survey is short and should only take a few minutes to complete, but the effect will be long-lasting and I would encourage as many people as possible to take part.”

The budget survey appears in the latest edition of In Touch magazine, which is being delivered to every household. It can also be completed online at www.waveney.gov.uk
