Have Your Say on How Tamworth Council Spends its Money

If you want to have your say on how the council spends its money and help to prioritise spending, you can take part in our Budget Consultation.

Residents, businesses and voluntary groups across Tamworth are all being urged to get involved and have their say.  Every year Tamworth Borough Council asks for people’s views on where and how money should be spent.

Whether you think we need to spend more on tackling anti-social behaviour, providing more events, keeping the town clean and green, supporting the town centre or improving housing, this is your chance to get involved and help shape our spending across the borough.

The idea behind getting people involved is to make sure we know what is important to our residents, businesses and voluntary groups so we can set our priorities, in line with what people want.

By getting involved, you can get play a role in helping us to form our spending priorities for the coming year.

Tamworth Borough Council Deputy Leader, Cllr Robert Pritchard, said, “We would like to know how you would prefer the council budgets to be balanced; spending reductions or council tax increases.  We would be interested to know people’s views and invite anyone who is interested to take part in the consultation so that we can capture those views.”

Consultation questionnaires are available on the Tamworth Borough Council website.

The consultation will run from August 1 to September 15. At the end of the consultation, all the responses will go before the Council’s Cabinet for consideration.
