Cuts Watch #393: Cuts announced by Warwickshire County Council
The Coventry Telegraph reports on the cuts announced by Warwickshire County Council. As a result of £21million of cuts in its budget this year, rising to £60 million over three years, there will be a wide scale shutdown of services and job losses. It is expected that there will be about 1,800 job losses over the next three years.
Nearly all the council’s 10 elderly care homes and up to half of its 34 libraries and youth clubs are set to close. Cuts will also hit the Connexions careers service to young people, street lights will be switched off at night and the county music service and children’s centres also face cuts.
