Gateshead Council Budget Consultation 2018/19

22 December 2017

Gateshead Council Budget Consultation

Gateshead Council is inviting residents, businesses, partners and employees to take part in a consultation until 12 January to gather views on their 2018/19 budget proposals.

Gateshead Council seek to reshape council services to meet an estimated £42million funding gap over the next two years.

One of the choices being consulted on is for the Council to consider reducing the level of its funding to the Shipley Art Gallery.

The Shipley Art Gallery opened in 1917 and provides access to high quality art, craft and design for the people of Gateshead and visitors to the area. It delivers a range of exhibitions and events, and works closely with local people and communities both in the Gallery and in venues across Gateshead.

A reduction in funding would have an impact on the services the Gallery can offer.

The public consultation will take place until Friday 12 January 2017.
To find out more about the proposed budget reduction to the Shipley Art Gallery, please see Proposal 40: Trading and Commercialisation Service, available here
