Newcastle Budget 2014-15 - This consultation has now ended

Last year we set out a three year budget (2013-16). This was subject to extensive consultation, receiving over 50,000 responses. City Council met on 6 March 2013 and agreed our budget programme for 2013-14. Full details of this can be found on the Budget 2016 documents page.
Since then the government has set out further cuts to council budgets. Due to the way local government is financed this has had a disproportionately heavy impact upon local authorities like Newcastle, other northern cities, central London and areas with high levels of deprivation. 
As a result of these cuts and continuing cost pressures since the budget was first published in November 2012 we must consider additional measures to ensure we set a balanced budget for 2014-15. These measures are outlined in the proposal budget documents, which you can find here: Newcastle Budget 2014-15.
We have already started to consult with people who use our services and who may be affected by these proposals. If you have feedback on any of the additional proposals you can give your views using the surveys below, by email to, or by post to: Let's talk, Room 245, Civic Centre, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8QH.
There is one online survey for each of the 13 budget proposals for 2014-15, and a general survey which you can use to give your views on the proposals as a whole. Thank you for taking part.
