Help the council to decide how services should be funded in
2014/15. In June this year the government announced that
local government funding will be cut by 10 per cent in real
terms in 2015/16. Southwark Council faces significant budget
pressures as a result of continued reductions in government
spending and at a time of increasing demand for services. As
a result, the council is facing further difficult decisions
as it faces a 23 million budget gap in 2014/15 and more
savings to come in future years. Come and talk to
councillors and officers and have your say.
