What are the £10.2m cuts for – where is the money going?
The Council has to save a further £10.2m on top of savings of around £35.5m already made. This is mostly due to cuts in real terms of grant funding from the Government and increased demand and costs of services. Since 2010 our grant has been cut by 40% so the Council has had less and less to spend on the services it provides. As a result some of the services that we have provided in the past, which we are not legally required to provide, will have to be reduced or stop altogether.Back
