Service changes to be considered by cabinet

Herefordshire Council’s cabinet will be considering changes to council services when it meets on Thursday 19 December.

The meeting will cover proposed changes to the school and post 16 transport policy, commissioning of day opportunities for adult social care and the budget monitoring report.

Councillor Tony Johnson, leader of Herefordshire Council, said: “The meeting will discuss significant changes to council services, which we appreciate will not be welcomed by all residents.

“It must be stressed, however, that we simply cannot continue to deliver the same level of services with ever decreasing government budgets and as such hard decisions will need to be taken to address this. 

“The council needs to save £33million over the next three years, on top of savings of £34million already made over the previous three years, to not only balance the budget, but to meet its priorities of protecting the vulnerable elderly and young people and investing for the economy, housing and jobs.”

The papers which are due to be considered by cabinet are available on the council’s website.
