Why do savings have to be made?

We have to reduce our spending across all services by approximately £29.8m over the next three years. This is mainly because there is an ongoing squeeze on public spending and a reduction in the grant that the council receives to deliver services.

A number of other services like libraries, schools and day care settings are also being tasked with making savings and this is one proposal amongst many.
