The Tory led Government are slashing the money we need for vital local services by an estimated 35% in real terms. Council services have been hit harder than almost any other Government Department and these are the deepest cuts the City has ever had to face. They present a real challenge and will have a huge impact on our schools, housing and care for older people, not to mention our parks, libraries and leisure centres.
I’m determined to work with you, your local Councillors and the City Mayor to protect and improve our frontline services, even during these very difficult times. The Council have launched a city wide consultation to make sure that people’s views are put right at the heart of decision making. I fully support this and would really encourage you to take part by clicking here.
