Richard Paver, Manchester City Council Treasurer, explains in this video the process for the further government cuts to services in Manchester and the public consultation starting on 26th November 2014.
Cuts of £59 million pounds will be imposed for 2015-16 with a further £30 million expected to be cut in 2016-17. This comes on top of the £250 million already cut from Manchester’s budget since 2010 by the current Conservative and Libdem coalition government.
The funding available to Manchester City Council has been cut by 40% since 2010.
With almost £100 million of cuts coming in the next couple of years the prospects for our city look bleak. The public consultation will enable input and views from residents to inform the decisions of the council.
