1. Have your say on the council's priorities

You may be aware that a major consultation has launched on Leicestershire County Council's future plans and priorities.

Since 2010, the council has saved £200m but increasing demand for services, plus uncertainty over Government funding, means the council needs to save another £75m over the next four years.

Parish councils, partner organisations, as well as businesses, residents and staff, are urged to have their say by completing a short questionnaire.

The consultation runs until 8 September. Your views are important and we'd encourage you to have your say.

The stakeholder questionnaire, supporting information and the interactive budget tool can be found at: www.leicestershire.gov.uk/priorities

2. Changes to Leicestershire CC recycling and household waste sites

Leicestershire County Council operate 14 sites across Leicestershire and want to hear your views on proposed changes to the opening times of recycling and household waste sites.

The council is proposing to:

  • reduce the daily recycling and household waster sites (RHWS) opening hours to 9am to 5pm in the summer (April to September), whilst leaving winter hours the same.

It is estimated that this proposal will save the council £134,000 by the end of 2020/21.

The consultation will run from 1 July to 23 September 2019.
