From 12 September to 12 December we consulted on proposals on the future shape of children’s centres, nurseries, libraries and youth services. The proposals identified £3.8m savings that will contribute to a total of £35 million savings that need to be made across all council services as a result of cuts to our grant from central government.
This consultation has now closed.
Final analysis of feedback will be completed and reported to the City Council’s Cabinet on 7 March 2017, with recommendations for consideration and approval.
We are continuing to work with organisations, residents and community groups around their role in the delivery of services in communities and further information can be found on the Connecting Communities webpages.
Our Scrutiny Co-ordination Committee discussed the consultation and emerging themes at a meeting on 9 November 2016. Further details of the meeting and the report about what people have told us so far are available.
During the consultation period, we held a series of local events for people to come and talk to us about our proposals. You can view reports on the feedback received at the workshops on the consultation events page.
