Kirklees Council budget event

Politicians go public on the budget

Kirklees Council budget information event

Thursday 25th January 2018, from 7pm to 8.30pm
Huddersfield Town Hall, Corporation Street, Huddersfield HD1 2TA

This event is a chance to hear the latest information about Kirklees Council’s budget, and to put your questions to local party leaders and deputy leaders whilst this year’s budget debate is still live.

You’ll hear from our finance director, Debbie Hogg, about the current budget position, including what’s happened over the last few years, the outcome of our recent budget challenge exercise, and an overview of your council’s current finances. We’ll also share the key dates in the budget timeline, including when people can still be involved.

You will then have an opportunity to put your questions to local politicians.

Taking part in the event are:

Councillor Shabir Pandor – Labour, Deputy Leader

Councillor John Taylor – Conservative, Deputy Leader

Councillor Nicola Turner – Liberal Democrats, Leader

Councillor Andrew Cooper – Green Party, Leader

Kirklees Council continues to face tough financial challenges. The amount of money we receive to provide local services is decreasing at a time when demand for some activities is rising. This means we need to make changes to what we do and the way we do it.

We know that many people are worried about how these changes will affect local families and communities, so we want to make sure that you can ask your questions ahead of this year’s budget setting meeting (which will take place on 14th February 2018).

This is an open event and anyone is welcome to attend.

The event will also be webcast live and you will be able to follow live via #kirkcouncil on twitter.
