There are too many pen pushers in the Town Hall, the cuts are hitting those doing the real work.

Staff working directly with the public cannot do their jobs well without support, whether that’s ordering supplies or paying the wages. The Council continually reviews its staffing levels and the overall costs of services compare well with those at other councils and, where appropriate, compare well with the private sector. Staffing numbers also compare well.

We have already cut back office staff and once services are reduced the support services behind them will be reviewed.
