The government is making substantial cuts to the council's funding.
For more information relating to these cuts, please see the current consultation on Budget Proposals, 2013-2015 on Leicester City Council's Citizen Space consultation hub. The link is at the bottom of this page.
We have therefore drawn up proposals for savings across each department in order to reduce our spending.
We are now inviting views on these proposals.
Why We Are Consulting
The City Council is preparing its budget for the years 2013/14 to 2014/15. We have already planned to reduce our annual spending by £75 million, and we estimate that we will need to make additional cuts of over £50 million per year by 2016.
One of our proposed savings is removing half price bus travel before 9:30 am for older people who are part of the National Concessionary Travel scheme.
We would like your help in completing this assessment to identify the impact of this proposal.
Who are we asking?
Leicester residents who hold older persons concessionary bus passes and travel before 9:30 am.
You are invited to provide feedback on your use of concessionary travel before 9:30 and the likely impact of proposed changes to the service on you or your family.
