What will Birmingham City Council look like in 2020?
And what kind of things need to change to get there?
Birmingham City Council needs to change and has less money to spend on services, so the council of 2020 will look very different to the council today.
It needs your help to shape the services our city wants.
The council has already had invaluable conversations with people across the city, in all walks of life, in the five years since budget cuts started to make an impact on the delivery of services.
And over the past few months, the council has looked at its work in detail through its Future Council programme.
At the heart of the new approach that’s emerging will be working locally with community groups. The council needs you to let it know if it is on the right track and to share your own thoughts and experiences.
Councillors and council officers are holding practical workshops in all ten city districts in early November on the council of the future.
Places on the workshops are available on a first come, first served basis. Click on the link below for the workshop you would like to attend and follow the instructions.
