Find out more about Lancaster City Council's 2015/16 budget




Members of the public are invited to attend a presentation of Lancaster City Council’s proposed priorities and budget for the coming year, which will form part of the next meeting of the council’s Budget and Performance Panel on Tuesday 27th January.

Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting which takes place at Morecambe Town Hall from 6pm.  

There will also be the opportunity to ask questions after the presentation has taken place.

Councillor Eileen Blamire, leader of Lancaster City Council, said: “Over the last few years the council has been very prudent with its finances.  Government cuts have significantly reduced our income and without major changes to the way we deliver services, we would be facing immediate difficulties with our budget.

"The latest budget projections show that our strategy of making savings during the year has been successful so far and as a result we have avoided having to make further cuts for the time being.  We recognise that difficult times still lie ahead, but our progress to date has been very good. 

"All this would not have been possible without the hard work of everyone within the council and I’d like to place on record my thanks to everyone for their contributions.”
