Mayor-Public Meetings

You are invited to attend Public meetings to discuss budget proposals with the Mayor of Bristol.

Have your say on the council’s budget

 The City Council’s budget for the next three years will focus on delivering vital services and investing in the future of Bristol.

However we face a difficult challenge to save £90m, due to cuts in government grants and an increased demand for our services.

The Mayor and Cabinet have examined all of the council’s income and expenditure and will publish a full set of budget proposals on Monday, 18 November detailing how, where and when savings are to be made.

Following the publication of the budget George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol, will give an overview of his budget proposals and then take questions from attendees at four public meetings on 26, 27, 28 and 29 November.

The Mayor is keen to listen to the views of as many people as possible before publishing a final set of proposals for debate at Full Council in February. Nothing will be decided until the budget is approved.

Please see the attached poster for details of the Budget Briefing consultation meetings.
