Why do we want your views?

Gateshead Council continues to face a significant financial challenge. Following reductions in government funding, we have been forced to cut our budget by £191m since 2010 and to consider further reductions of £49.5m over the next five years. The Government typically assume and expect local authorities to increase Council Tax to bridge the gap. We welcome your views on the draft budget and Council Tax proposals.
