Forums to discuss planned budget cuts

Have your say

COUNCIL proposals to deal with unprecedented cuts in its Government grant will be put under the microscope in a series of meetings.

Hartlepool Borough Council faces cuts in 2012-13 which mean that the total grant reduction in the first two years of the Coalition Government will be 25 per cent.

As a result, savings of £6.7m have to be identified for 2012-13, with more than £5.3m expected to be achieved through the council’s business transformation efficiency programme, leaving almost £1.4m to be found from other initiatives.
