Calderdale budget proposals

Calderdale have published their draft budget which include severe proposed reductions in the Countryside Service.



The following location has all the proposals and a feedback form which can be downloaded;
http://www.calderdale.gov.uk/council/consultations/council-budget/communities-budget-proposals.pdf
 
The Countryside Service proposals are shown on the last 3 pages of "Communities Directorate Detailed Growth and Savings Proposals" and although it doesn't say much it does show a headcount reduction of 6 and a budget cut of £160K in 2013-14. This is bound to have a major impact on the services we see from the Countryside Service and I personally intend to provide feedback to the Calderdale Cabinet. If you wish to do likewise then feel free, as the more voices raised expressing concern the better.
