City of Wolverhampton Council, UK - Budget Simulator

Closed 30 Apr 2020

Opened 19 Feb 2020

Overview

Like all local authorities in the UK The City of Wolverhampton Council have had to make significant savings and come up with innovative ways to make the budget stretch.

Since 2010 they've already made savings in excess of £235 million yet there's still more to be done. 

In 2020 the council calculated that they needed to make savings of £20 million over the next three years so opted to use a budget Simulator to find out where the publics priorities lay, and what increase to some costs they'd be willing to accept in order to balance the budget.
