your-city-your-sayPortsmouth residents are being asked to help shape the city's budget strategy for future years.

Portsmouth City Council has launched a budget consultation to help inform decisions for the authority's 2019-20 budget and the results will also be used to set priorities for coming years.

Like all councils, Portsmouth is facing a further reduction in the grant it gets from the government. In the coming three years, the council needs to save another £12m from its revenue budget. This is in addition to £77m savings it has had to make in the last eight years.
