Last year thousands of local people including council staff and young people took the opportunity to speak up about how the council intended to spend its budget.

The consultation starts today and you've got until January 26th, 2018, to have their say on how the council proposes to spend £1.6m a day providing services which touch lives in every street in the city.

Cabinet agreed to consult on plans which aim to increase spending on education to more than £160m next year, including more than £140m of which will go directly to head teachers to spend on their school budgets. 

This includes £2.2m for schools over and above what's been allocated by the Welsh Government and on top of that the Council is earmarking in excess of £140m of capital funding to build new schools.

More than £100m is due to be spent on social services for adults and children, more than £6m on poverty and prevention strategies and a further £50m on services like waste, recycling, streets, cultural and library services.
