Event description: Telford & Wrekin Council are encouraging people in the borough to give their views on the budget proposals at this special consultation event.

The proposals include freezing council tax, already one of the lowest in the region, for the next two years and launching a two year £15m investment programme targeting two key concerns for local people – the environment and rising youth unemployment in the borough.
The Council must cut a further £22m by 2016 from its budget in the wake of continuing cuts in Government grant.

This event will involve a short presentation and a number of stalls at which you can find out more about the key budget proposals and have your say on these.
