Every year the CoCT publishes a draft budget for citizens to read and comment on. However, the budget is the size of a small suitcase. It is impossible for people to understand how much money is being spent in their areas and if the city is spending money in a fair way across all areas of the city.
NU is campaigning for the CoCT to produce a People’s Budget that everyone can understand. We also run budget workshops and make submissions to the city.
