East Sussex County Council agreed its budget for 2018/19 at its meeting on 6 February.
It will see the Council make savings of £17 million. This includes a budget
reduction for Adult Social Care and Health of nearly £10 million.
The Council are asking for people’s views on how they are proposing to make the nearly £10 million in savings. What people tell them will help them to understand the impact and risks associated with the proposals.
How to take part
You can respond to all of the proposals in the public consultation, or just the savings areas you are interested in.
