Have your say on the savings facing Lambeth

Owing to Conservative/ Liberal Democrat central government funding cuts Lambeth Council is having to make cuts in its spending of £42million by 2012. The Council faces hard choices but is hoping to make savings in the administration and 'back office' functions so that services are maintained - however some cuts will hit frontline services.

What would you cut? How would you balance the budget? Lambeth have developed an online budget simulator tool to get an idea of what services residents think should be safeguarded. Go to the Lambeth Your Choice website and have your say.

The online simulator is just one of the means by which Lambeth is consulting local residents on the budget choice for next year - go to the Budget consultation 2010/2011 page on the Lambeth website
