Over the next 3 years Hertfordshire County Council needs to reduce its budget by £100 million. This is because of a reduction in the amount of money it receives from central government combined with greater demand for services.

Given the financial challenges HCC faces, it needs to make some important decisions about how to allocate money and it wants your views.

HCC welcomes businesses’ views on the approach it should take to meet this objective.
