Cornwall Council’s Budget and You Choose

As part of the consultation for the 2014/15 budget, the Council is trying to use different methods to consult with the public. One of these is free* programme called You Choose.

This is an online budget simulator which allows you to choose the level of funding each directorate. You can cut funding in some areas or invest in other areas as you try to balance the books. As you make your choices you can see how this affects the Council’s budget overall and the level of council tax. The results of You Choose will be fed into the overall budget consultations and will influence the budget for 2014/15.

More information on You Choose can be found HERE. Or you can go straight to the simulator HERE

*the programme is free to use, but there is a small £500 cost if the council wants a very detail breakdown of the data.
