Residents still have the chance to tell Bradford Council their ideas about how services can be delivered differently in the future.
bradfordA series of events which was held around the Bradford district at the end of last year are resuming in 2015 with the next one being held at the Thornbury Centre next Wednesday, 14 January, 7pm – 9pm. 
Bradford Council has organised the events to talk to local people about a New Deal for their District.
By next year the Council will have cut its spending by over £170 million since 2011. Between now and 2020 the money for Council services is forecast to reduce by another £130 million. That is nearly a third from £420 million today to around £290 million.
Other evening events include one at Clayton Village Hall on Wednesday, 28 January, and at the Clarke Foley Centre in Ilkley on Thursday, 5 February, 7pm – 9pm.
Further daytime events are also being held between 10am to 12 noon. They are being held at Park Lane Centre, Little Horton, on Monday, 26 January; Shipley Library on Wednesday, 4 February; Carlisle Business Centre, Manningham, on Thursday 12 February amd Central Hall, Keighley, on Thursday, 19 February.
Coun David Green, Leader of Bradford Council, said: “We want to talk with local people to strike  new deal about what they can expect from local services, their rights and responsibilities and how they and other people could help by doing things differently.
“Business as usual is not an option as the national spending cuts we face are significant so the way things are done will have to change. For example, communities may need to get involved in running som services.”
If you wish to attend the events it is best to register in advance to ensure a place by logging on to  or you can turn up on the day.
