Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Transport Consultation

Closed 11 Nov 2019

Opened 24 Sep 2019

Overview

Central government funding for councils is reducing. The Council has already made savings of £100 million in recent years while delivering and even improving services for the residents of Stockport. Over the coming years we’ll be faced with further difficult decisions about how to prioritise our spending.

In 2020/21, we need to make savings of £10 million. We want your views on a range of proposals which would contribute £4.2m to this target.

We need your help to get the savings proposals right for Stockport. We want to hear from you and want your views on these proposals being put forward to make these savings.

For further information about the proposals above, please see the MTFP SEND Transport Scrutiny Proposal on the Council website.   

This proposal is also closely related to the MTFP Children and Education proposal, which aims to develop an integrated children’s and education service in 2020.  The key focus of this proposal is to ensure that the Council is getting value for money for the things it purchases and that it explores alternative buying options outside the Council,  whilst still meeting its legal duties and finding new ways of working that meet Stockport’s needs.

Please ensure we receive your views by 11th November 2019. It is important that we receive your views by this date as all feedback will be pulled together into a report which will then be considered by Scrutiny Committees and then at the Cabinet meeting in December. If you require this consultation in an alternative format, please contact consultation@stockport.gov.uk
