In anticipation of the cuts, we have already been planning for the savings that will need to be achieved over the next three years.
But this does not take into account the £28m that we have already saved as part of our ongoing challenge to reduce costs and provider greater value for money. We have reduced our capital (or new buildings) programme, introduced a phased programme of redundancies, cut administration and associated costs, and proposed disposal of council assets.
Our new three year plan identifies how much we will need to deliver services, taking into account government funding. The following savings are required.
|2011 / 2012
