Budget Simulator

You can try your hand at dealing with the budget gap by trying our budget simulator. However, the budget simulator is not a formal part of the consultation process and you are advised to complete the main consultation survey as well. 

Consultation report

All responses to the consultation will be analysed and included in a report that will be published on the Bristol City Council website in early 2018.

Your responses will help inform final proposals which will be considered by Cabinet in January 2018 and by Full Council at its budget-setting meeting on 20 February 2018.
