Have your say

THERE is still time for residents to have their say in a public consultation on the allocation of financial resources by Hampshire County Council.

The closing date for the six-week ‘Shaping Hampshire – Spending Review Consultation’ is 11:59pm on July 6.

Feedback collected during the consultation will be used plan local services from April 2016 onwards.

The consultation builds a picture of the financial position ahead, and asks residents and stakeholders for their views on how the county council could manage an anticipated shortfall in funding of around £98m.

The findings from the consultation will be considered by the county council this October when decisions are made on the money available for the years 2016 to 2018.

The survey can be completed online at
