Bolton Council have outlined the full extent of the budget cuts local people could face in the next twelve months as they attempt to cut £15 million from local spending.


The cuts, which come off the back of the recent budget plans by the new Conservative/Lib Dem coalition government, include a host of local services, facilities and jobs.


Some of the proposed cuts include closing a number of local libraries, scaling back services for young people in Bolton, cuts to special education provisions, as well as reducing routine maintenance in the city such as litter picking, repairs to buildings and grass cutting.


More cuts are due to be announced within the next few months as the Council begin the tricky process of deciding which services will be cut either completely or temporarily.


Almost 350 jobs will also face the axe with the Council ready to start consulting those under threat within the next few days.
