Next month, Birmingham City Council will be releasing proposals to cut £120 million from their spending budget in 2013 and would like your views.

The council is facing a £192 million government grant reduction in 2013/14 and are seeking to make budget savings of £120 million for the year. Increasing costs and grant reductions in the future will mean that the council needs to make cumulative cuts totaling around £600 million by 2016/17.

Once proposals are published on the Birmingham City Council web site at the beginning of December, there are a number of ways to have your say:
