The pandemic has had a profound impact on all of our finances, including the council’s. This year alone it has cost the council £60 million, and with the health emergency still not over, the costs are expected to rise even higher.
Despite the challenges, by law the council must set a balanced budget for 2021-22. We need to save £40 million over the next two years and have set out our draft plans to achieve this. We want to know what you think of our proposals and encourage you to have your say. Find out more here:
We are consulting on our proposals between 4 December 2020 until 17 January 2021. Have your say by completing the short forms below here on Let’s talk Newcastle Online or by emailing us here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here are our budget documents which give an overview of what we propose:

What happens next
We will consult on our draft budget proposals from 4 December 2020 until 17 January 2021. In February 2021, Cabinet will agree the post-consultation budget and will recommend it to full Council. Council will then meet in March 2021 to debate and vote on the budget.
We will publish the final budget proposals, including a report on the consultation findings, on our website: Newcastle City Council
