Budget - West Sussex County Council

By PAUL RICHARDS Shipley Parish Council

Shipley Parish Council Contributor


West Sussex County Council are seeking views via a consultation process, on their proposed 2024/25 budget. Please see below.


Our Budget Consultation 2024 - 2025

We continue to align our budget to deliver the council’s priorities.

However, we must make plans within the current financial pressures that we and many other local authorities continue to face.

Cost-of-living is being felt by everyone across the county. Our budget shortfall for 2024/25 is £44.9 million, and we are required by law to set a balanced budget. This means that we will have to make some difficult choices about what level of services we provide and how we deliver them.

As part of our planning we will be asking our partners and residents to comment on these plans as well as the priorities set out in Our Council Plan (opens in new window)(External link).

We want to hear what you think are the most vital services, where you’d spend or reduce money and what options you’d prefer us to make to achieve a balanced budget.

Have your say

To help guide our budget plans, we want to hear:

  • what you think are the most vital services
  • where you’d spend or reduce money
  • which options you feel we should focus on to achieve a balanced budget.

Take part in our survey below, which is open from Monday 30 October 2023 until Sunday 10 December 2023.

What happens next?

Responses to this consultation survey and feedback from scrutiny committee chairman will be considered at an Executive Leadership Team meeting on 28 December 2023 and at a Public Cabinet meeting on 30 January 2024. Proposals will then be put forward for a final decision at Full Council (opens in new window)(External link) in February 2024.
