Cannock Chase Council’s Cabinet has produced a range of potential savings options that will go out to consultation as part of the budget-setting process for 2011/12.
The Cabinet did not determine a full proposed budget at their meeting on Thursday 25th November because there is still uncertainty about exactly how much financial support Cannock Chase Council will receive from the Department for Communities and Local Government.
Instead, 29 savings options have been identified for consultation. These are not firm budget proposals but options for consideration and consultation.
Twenty-three savings options cover a range of Council areas, while six are specifically about employees’ terms and conditions. The Cabinet hopes to avoid compulsory redundancies by agreeing a range of changes to terms and conditions with trades unions and employees.
Residents, businesses, trades unions and employees will be consulted on the potential savings before Cabinet Members recommend a balanced budget at their meeting on 3rd February next year. The budget for 2011/12 will be set by Full Council on 16th February or 2nd March 2011.
