Time running out to give your views

Time is running out for residents to have their say on Council plans to slash the budget for street cleaning and a host of other environmental services. The Labour run Council are proposing £970,000 in cuts to environmental services, including: 

  • less winter gritting
  • cuts in street cleaning
  • reductions in grass cutting
  • fewer staff to look after our parks
  • weed control will be cut in half
Meanwhile, some environmental services will end completely. These includes:
  • getting rid of staff who remove graffiti and the Council’s dog warden
  • ending the volunteer support service for parks.

The consultation ends on midnight on 9th February.
