Surrey County Council Consultations
This message from Ken Gulati of Surrey County Council. The link to respond to consultation requests is: Surrey Consultations
As many of you will know Surrey County Council is facing huge financial pressures. The number of residents needing our support – whether it is for learning disabilities or elderly care – is rising. But our core government grant has been cut by more than two hundred million pounds since 2010.
We have worked hard to find more than half a billion pounds of savings in areas which have the least impact, but the challenge is getting harder. For instance, Surrey already has more than 93,000 residents aged over 65 who can’t manage a domestic task on their own and this will rise by 36 per cent by 2030.
After talking to our residents and the partners we work with, such as borough and district councils, the voluntary sector and businesses, we have launched a new community vision for Surrey by 2030. The aim is to transform the support provided by all of us to residents and communities, but to get there Surrey County Council needs to take some very difficult decisions.
Over the next year we need to save a further £85m which means we will have to make changes to some services. So we have launched consultations on a range of services and want to hear your views by Friday 4 January 2019 to help us shape those services for the future.

We are holding drop-in sessions across the county in November and December 2018. If you have any problems accessing the questionnaires online then please come along to one of the sessions and we will help you to complete it.
