Cllr Steve Pitt, Deputy Leader of the Council, said: "This is a chance for people to come and talk face to face and a way of reaching people who might not normally get involved in our budget consultation. We're really keen to find out how we can continue to work efficiently but also keen to hear from residents and businesses about the areas you think we need to be focusing on in the future."

Portsmouth City Council still needs to make efficiencies and savings of £7.5m between 2020- 2023. Most of these saving can be made from further efficiencies and income generation and the council would like your views on these areas
