Groups are urged to share their views on the Serving Hampshire – Balancing the Budget Consultation that is running until 11:59pm on Sunday 18 July 2021.

Groups should consider carefully how any option could impact delivery of their services.
Information on current proposed options for balancing the budget are available here Serving Hampshire – Balancing the Budget Consultation | About the Council | Hampshire County Council (hants.gov.uk)
