Gateshead Council Budget Consultation

Have your say

Gateshead Council is inviting residents, businesses, partners and employees to take part in a consultation until Friday 11 January 2019 to gather views on their 2019-20 budget proposals.

Gateshead Council is seeking to reshape council services to meet a £29million funding gap next year.

One of the choices being consulted on is for the Council to consider reducing the level of its funding to Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums including 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.
