Can you balance Edinburgh Council's budget? Have a go!

Edinburgh’s budget challenge

The Council is facing a budget challenge which affects how much money they have to invest in our services in the coming years. The amount of money they get from the Government and through Council Tax has remained about the same, yet it’s costing more money to run services and there are more people in the city needing help.

They need to save £67 million from their budget over the next three years and still make sure they can provide the services that are important to the people of Edinburgh.

Play your part

Tell them where you would invest and where you would save money to balance the Council’s budget. Please let them know your views by 19 December 2014.

Watch a short animated film to find out more about the Council, the services they provide for the city and how you can have your say.

Take the budget challenge with the online budget planner and tell them what services you would spend or save money on in 2015 to 2018.

You can also comment on the 2015/16 budget proposals. Take a look at the overview, or download the full proposals.

Your feedback will help the Council to make its final budget decisions on 12 February 2015.
