Newcastle City Council Budget Consultation

Have your say

Newcastle City Council is inviting residents, businesses, partners and employees to take part in a consultation until 6 January 2019 to gather views on their 2019-20 budget proposals.

Newcastle City Council is seeking to reshape council services to meet a £20million funding gap next year.

One of the choices being consulted on is for the Council to consider reducing the level of its funding to Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums including the Laing Art Gallery.

The Laing Art Gallery provides access to high quality art for the people of Newcastle and visitors to the area. It delivers a range of exhibitions and events, and works closely with local people and communities both in the Gallery and in venues across Tyneside.

A reduction in funding would have an impact on the services the Gallery can offer.

Information about the proposals can be found here


The public consultation will take place until Sunday 6 January 2019.
