The county council has to make significant savings by 2014/15. We are making good progress. We've taken a hard look at the way we work, trying as much as possible to protect frontline services. We have restructured, changed the way we do things by using new technologies and found efficiencies by sharing budgets with our public sector partners. But we will not find all the savings through efficiencies alone.
We want to know which areas of our work you think are particularly important, and what you think our priorities for the county should be - so please fill out our online poll.
