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;
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.
