Because the RDC Officers are still making calculations for the Budget 2018/19 we are not certain what the Rochford District Council, DRAFT BUDGET GAP is this time round (shortage of income against expenditure [revenue]) that must be closed by law in the final budget. RDC also has a Capital Reserves and Receipts Budget.

However, as there certainly WILL be a REVENUE GAP we think that any BUDGET SURVEY needs to give residents the chance to look at what options there are for increases in charges and/or savings so that we can pass on your views. [if you are on the front page click the £5 !!] [if you are on a Mobile Phone please use Landscape.]

So we are publishing this BUDGET SURVEY as an alternative to the one put forward by Finance Officers.

We are asking for your email address so that we can show you the results in February and your post code to validate that only residents of Rochford District are voting.

We are Registered with the Information Commissioner under the Data Protection Act. Our Privacy Policy is here.

So what do you think?

The Questions are below.

Please indicate Yes (agree) or No (disagree)?

Thank you !!
