I’m sure you are aware that Councils across the country are facing major cuts in funding. The Government is continuing to reduce the amount of money Councils are able to spend on services. These cuts are falling more and more on deprived, northern areas such as Wirral. While we fiercely believe these cuts to be both disproportionate and unfair, we have no choice but to implement them.
For the next financial year, Wirral Council needs to make savings of £27.5 million. This week I have published a series of options for how that money could be saved and now we need to know what you think.
