NCC Draft Budget Proposals 2018-19

Northamptonshire County Council is consulting all residents about the draft budget for 2018-19. The Council is forced to make savings of £9.6m in Phase 1 and they propose to do this by

  • A redesign of library services which may include a number of library closures
  • Reductions in Trading Standards
  • Reductions in Highways Maintenance and winter maintenance
  • The removal of bus subsidies across the county

A summary of the Council’s proposals can be seen here.

Potterspury Parish Council shares the concern of many residents and held an extra parish council meeting on 22 November to discuss the draft  proposal and to respond to NCC.

This is Potterspury PC’s reply to the consultation.
