Cllr Peter Coupland, South Holland District Council's Portfolio Holder for Finance, said: "We are in financially challenging times and are under pressure to continue to find efficiency savings.

"Despite this, through prudent financial management, we are able to propose a balanced budget for 2017/18 whilst maintaining key services that our residents rely on, such as our weekly refuse/recycling collections.

"Looking further forward, we will be generating substantial income and savings by 2020 as part of our ongoing Moving Forward Programme.

"Please don't miss this chance to have your say. It is vitally important that we consider as many views as possible before making a decision on the proposals."

All responses to South Holland District Council's Draft Budget consultation will be considered as part of the budget planning process ahead of consideration by the council's Cabinet on February 14 and Full Council on February 22.

Paper copies of the Budget can be viewed in the council's reception area at its offices in Spalding at Priory Road.
