Conservative-run council approves first round of budget cuts

by Chris Wiggin on 19 December, 2015

The Tory controlled City Council needs to cut £19.6 million to balance its budget for 2016/17.

The first round of £12.1m of savings were approved by a meeting of full council this week.

The Liberal Democrat group leader Cllr Nick Sandford, quoted in the Peterborough Telegraph, said, “There are glaring holes in this budget. There is nothing there on services contracted out to Amey or Vivacity. There’s no mention of any parking charges. You have to be left with the suspicion that the cabinet is not telling us about something that will come forward in the second proposals.”
