Budget and priorities for East Sussex

Closed 10 Dec 2023

Opened 30 Oct 2023


We'd like to ask if you agree with our priorities for East Sussex and how we spend money on your behalf to provide services for people in the county. 

Each year at East Sussex County Council we review these priorities before setting a budget for the coming year. 

Local authorities like ours have limited resources, so it's vital we spend your money effectively.


Why your views matter

You can complete this survey in as little as five minutes. 

The more responses we get, the better we will understand what matters most to people overall and how different groups or communities may see things. 

Results from the survey will be analysed and shared with the councillors you have elected as they review the priorities for East Sussex and set the county council's budget for 2024/25.

This is your chance to help shape how they approach those decisions.
