In this issue we talk about the challenge to set a balanced budget which has never been harder. Council Leader Martin Gannon writes about the difficult decisions we are having to make in order to close the £29m gap in our funding next year. Consultation has begun on our proposals for 2019/20 and we urge you to give us your views.

Our benefits team are seeing more people who are finding it harder to cope with their finances, particularly in light of recent benefit changes and the increasing cost of living. To support residents, we take an in-depth look at how we can help you make the most of your money from checking you're entitled to the right benefits to providing confidential advice on dealing with debts.

Gateshead is in the spotlight once again with plans for an exhibition to mark The Angel of The North coming of age in 2019. Saltwell Park has once again been voted one of the top ten parks in Britain and two of the borough's major development opportunities - Gateshead Quays and Follingsby Max - have been officially backed by the Department for International Trade. We look forward to these fantastic projects coming to fruition over the next few years - creating jobs and driving prosperity in Gateshead.

We also include our regular features including health matters, what's on and much more, including local news and key activities over the festive period.
