Ideas can also be submitted ideas by emaiing us. Stirling Council is once again seeking the views of the public on budget proposals.

The Council is committed to delivering high quality services, investing around £200 million every year across the Stirling area, but the current financial climate means real choices have to be made about exactly how and where that money is spent.

Convenor of the Council’s Finance and Economy Committee, Councillor Neil Benny, said: “The Priority Based Budgeting (PBB) process allows the whole discussion about what the Council spend and where it spends it to be opened up to everyone, and we always welcome input from members of the public, whether they want to give their opinion on Council proposals or make their own suggestions.

“It’s no secret that these are challenging times and we have some very tough financial decisions to make, but this is not just about cuts as we’re also looking at ways we can work smarter or even generate new income.”

As part of this a new People’s Forum is being established to seek the public’s views on specific proposals whenever they arise.
