Rising to the challenge: have your say on your council’s budget

Complete our survey to help us set a budget that meets your needs.

We want to create a healthy, prosperous, and greener future for everyone who lives in Nottinghamshire. To help us achieve this, we need to know your priorities.

Each year, we have a legal duty to balance our budget and, just like the people in Nottinghamshire, we’re also feeling the pressures that are driving up the cost of living such as record inflation and energy costs. Many other factors, including a national shortage of social care staff and a need for more funding, are also adding to those pressures. The scale of the financial challenge facing the Council next year is currently estimated at £34.8 million. This estimated funding gap rises to £73.8 million when looking at this over the next 3 years.

Visit our website to find out more information, and to access and complete the short survey before it closes on Monday, 2nd January 2023.

Have your say today and help us rise to this challenge.

Want something publicising?

Don’t forget, if you have any event or item of interest for the village, just email it to webmaster@suttoncumlound.net and our resident website monitor will do his best to accommodate you. All posts go out to our increasing list of email update subscribers as soon as they’re published.

We also have the Sutton Spotlight, which goes out to every house in the village on a quarterly (ish) basis. Space is sometimes limited, so try to get your entry in early.

We’re also lucky to have a village Journalist who collates news and updates for the Retford Times on a weekly basis. Get your copy in on Monday morning for the Thursday issue.

All our website updates are also sent down the village “X formerly Twitter” feed, @SuttonCumLound. So, follow us there for these and other items in and around our area.

The Parish Council has a Facebook presence for all things of a council nature. Contact the Clerk if you want anything on this feed.
