What will Birmingham City Council look like in 2020?

What kind of things need to change to get us there?

The city council needs to change and we have less money to spend on services, so the council of 2020 will look very different to the council today. We need your help to shape the services our city wants.

Councillors and council officers are hosting ten practical, positive workshops on the council of the future around the city – one in each district. Please click on one of the links below to register your interest in attending a workshop.

Talk to us… continue our conversation

We’ve already had invaluable conversations with people across the city, in all walks of life, in the five years since budget cuts started to make an impact on the delivery of our services.

And over the past few months, we’ve looked at our work in detail through the Future Council programme.

Now we’re ready to share our thoughts on the future of the council with you.

At the heart of it will be working locally with partners, community groups and residents. We need you to let us know if we are on the right track with our ideas and to share your own thoughts and experiences.
