Council budget cut proposals


Cornwall Council has published details of where an additional £24 million of saving could be made to its budget.

The Council’s first draft budget document suggests a number of proposals, including cutting nearly £12 million from Adult Care and Health; bus services by a further £1 million, and doubling the controversial Newquay Airport development fee from £5 to £10.

The Council said: “The Cabinet is now publishing this first draft of the 2014 / 2015 budget, setting out the key areas where the £24 million additional savings required could be made, to give local residents, businesses, partners and Council staff the opportunity to give their views.”

The proposal can viewed on the Council’s website by clicking here.
