Thank you to everyone who took part in this consultation. A copy of the Consultation Report is now available to view in the 'Summary of Results' section below.

Thank you for sharing your views on:

  • the action we should take to balance the budget – we had 5 options for you to consider such as making changes to services and lobbying government for more funding
  • the future of our services – what you thought we should prioritise spending on

Kent County Council (KCC) is seeking your views on spending priorities and the approach we should take to help us amend the 2020-21 Budget.

We need to amend the Budget because of additional spending and loss of income due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

Your responses will be considered by Members (Councillors) at the full County Council meeting in September 2020.
