The council’s new corporate priorities, approach to savings and proposed increase in council tax are the focus of a public consultation.
Over the last 10 years the city council has achieved £30m worth of savings, new income and efficiencies.
However, central government funding cuts and unavoidable growth leaves the city council with a projected shortfall in future years.
Paul Kendrick, the city council’s cabinet member for resources, said: “Despite these challenges, the council isn’t proposing any significant service changes in the next financial year.
“Instead, we’re adapting financially by generating more income and making savings and efficiencies where appropriate. So I encourage as many people as possible to give us their views on our budget consultation for 2019-20.”
The online budget consultation sets out the council’s new draft corporate priorities and will shape how it will play its role in realising the Norwich 2040 city vision through partnership working, service delivery and income generation.
The consultation asks for feedback on three main elements:
- The council’s new corporate priorities
- Savings approach
- Council tax

The consultation will close at midnight on Sunday 6 January 2019.
