Please give us your views on what your priorities are for where you live and how we should change Council services.
The Council has agreed draft spending and saving plans for the next three years. Based on this we now need to make decisions on how to change services.
Like other cities, Edinburgh is changing:
- our population is growing and changing
- demand for our services is increasing all the time
- local government budget cuts are continuing
- technology is improving.
So we need to change how we deliver our services. We have already made some changes. We’re making better use of technology and working closer with our communities and partners, but we need to do more.
Edinburgh residents have already given us valuable feedback on what’s important to them through our budget consultation and through ongoing involvement with local Neighbourhood Partnerships. You told us to protect education, care for older people, culture, and services for vulnerable children and adults. These continue to be our priorities. You also have told us you want to be involved in reshaping your services.
