Barnet Council is seeking views from residents on budget proposals for 2024-25, including a rise in Council Tax.

As reported earlier this year, the council is facing a large budget gap.

The council is seeking views on savings and income proposals intended to balance the budget for next year, and particularly on a proposal to increase Council tax and a proposal to apply an Adult Social Care Precept on Council Tax to help pay for adult social care services.

The consultation document and online questionnaire are available at the Council website:

The consultation closes on 21st January 2024. 

The findings from the consultation will be reported to the Council Cabinet on 6th February 2024 and will then be considered by the Council on 27th February 2024 before final approval of the 2024/25 budget.
