Shaping Hampshire: Spending Review Consultation now closed

A six-week consultation asking residents and stakeholders for their views on Hampshire County Council’s future potential funding options has now closed.

Between 26 May and 6 July, feedback has been collected on a range of potential options for managing an anticipated £98 million shortfall in the revenue budget by April 2017, due to on-going reductions in funding from central Government.

In an effort to explore every option, the County Council is reviewing key areas of spend and service activity with a focus on identifying different ways of delivering services more efficiently and at lower cost, in order to reduce the overall budget spend.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation - your feedback is very important.

All the responses gathered during the process will be analysed and used to inform future planning around the development of any future proposals to deliver the likely £98 million savings.

The findings from this consultation will be considered by the County Council in October 2015, when decisions are made on the money available for the financial periods 2016/17 and 2017/18.
