People will be able to find out more about the council’s budget proposals for 2016/17 at two meetings.

Leader of Hartlepool Borough Council, Coun Christopher Akers-Belcher, will give a presentation to each of the authority’s two neighbourhood forums tomorrow.

The South and Central Neighbourhood Forum will take place at 10am and the North and Coastal Neighbourhood Forum will follow at 2pm.

Both meetings will take place in Committee Room B at Hartlepool Civic Centre.

Other issues to be considered at the meetings include a report from Chief Solicitor Peter Devlin about the timing of council meetings.

Both Neighbourhood Forums will be asked to express their views on the matter.

Each forum meeting will also include a public question time, and there will be updates from Cleveland Fire Brigade and Housing Hartlepool.

There will also be a report for information on how the Ward Member Budgets of individual councillors are being spent.
