person using laptop computer

Any resident of Highland Perthshire who want to have their say on the new Corporate Plan and Budget for 2023-2024 from Perth and Kinross Council has until Sunday, the 20th of November to complete the survey.

They are seeking feedback from all residents about what is most important to you and your community, to help guide their priorities and where they will be investing for the future.

In the overview for the survey the council say: As a Council we are committed to serving the people and communities of Perth and Kinross and delivering the best possible services that we can within the resources at our disposal.

“In doing this we recognise that we need to continually consider what makes the biggest difference to those in the greatest need.

“The pandemic has only added to the significant and increasingly complex challenges we face. The equalities gap we were working to address has widened and our local economy, like others, has been hit hard.

“Alongside this we are seeing increasing demands for services while facing reductions in the resources we have available to meet these demands. All of this means difficult decisions ahead on where we commit our resources, which will include having to reduce what we do in some areas.”

As well as looking at what’s important to residents and what they think of the Council’s priorities, they are also asking what services should be protected and where the public would be willing to accept reductions in spending to help the Council with budget savings.

Alongside the survey they will be running two online events where the public can tell them what the most important issues in their area are. The first of these events will run on Thursday 17th of November and the second will run on Tuesday 22nd of November both from 6:30pm till 8pm.
