We are asking for feedback from your Community Council and people in your area on our initial ideas for meeting the continuing pressures on Council services and budgets.
Since 2012 we have saved £240 million, but we expect we will need to save at least £106 million between now and 2022/23.
No decisions have been taken yet and feedback will shape the long-term plans as well as the more detailed proposals for balancing the budget in February for 2019/20.
Please complete our online survey or try your hand at prioritising services and balancing our budgets by 7 December. You can also read our ideas Planning for change and delivering services and fill in a print survey which will be available in libraries and Council offices from 15 October.
Please can you share this information with your community.

Attached, guidance on the City Council's 2050 City Vision.
The Lord Provost has written to us:
2050 EDINBURGH CITY VISION
As you may be aware, an engagement campaign has been launched with Edinburgh citizens to establish their vision for how they would like the city to be in 2050. To arrive at the best and most compelling vision for Edinburgh in 2050, we need as many citizens to contribute their views and aspirations. This will help to identify areas of consensus that the city can unite behind and work towards as a common goal. The greater the number of contributors, the more accurate and representative the City Vision becomes and the greater the strength it then has.
Edinburgh’s Community Councils perform a particularly valuable role in engaging with local communities and in ensuring that their views, opinions and needs are understood and reflected. I should therefore be grateful for your support in promoting the 2050 Edinburgh City Vision campaign. I have attached the Campaign Toolkit that provides everything that an organisation needs to get involved. Most importantly, directing your communities to the edinburgh2050.com website enables citizens to contribute their vision to help shape the future of Edinburgh.
I should greatly welcome your support for this important campaign. Please do not hesitate to contact me direct should you require any further information.
Welcome to the new website of Craigmillar Community Council, which will be officially launched at our AGM this evening.
This is intended to be a resource for local people to find out and contribute to our work.
The construction of the website is a work in progress and we welcome suggestions for improvement, as well as items to include.
