The City Innovation Challenge is to encourage new ideas and solutions for Brighton & Hove. The council is facing unprecedented cuts in funding from government which means that they will have to review how they deliver all services and some may be discontinued.
Over the next four years, they need to save around £68 million and their budget proposals for 2016/17 outline how they plan to make savings.
The Council is now asking residents, businesses and community groups for ideas and you could win a cash prize of £1,000 for your solution. They are looking for bold and creative ways to save money, bring a benefit to your neighbourhood or community, or ways to generate income to fund services.
