Chaired by Michael Burton, editor of The MJ, this discussion provided the opportunity to discuss the different approaches local authorities are taking to cuts, and unique factors that drive these approaches.
Held at the 2011 SOLACE conference in Edinburgh, chief executive participants discussed:
- How the financial year 2011/12 has developed
- The prognosis for 2012/13
- Early indications of how the 2013/14 year might turn out financially
Mike Burton said: "As we approach the budget-setting season, this discussion will be of highly topical interest to all chief executives and senior managers. Our panel of distinguished chief executives looked at the what has occurred to budgets in the current financial year and discussed the likely pattern of budgets from their perspective for 2012/13 and in particular 2013/14."
