Cornwall seeks help to cut £24m from budget
Stakeholders are being urged to have their say on Cornwall Council plans to axe an additional £24 million from its budget next year, at the last of a series of consultation events this evening.
The council announced last month that it would have to make the savings, on top of the £19million already planned, after seeing its budget reduced by Government.
The meeting at County Hall in Truro today is the last planned before the council’s cabinet discusses recommendations from each of its portfolio advisory committees next month. Details on how the cuts could be delivered were released last week. It included an £11.7 million reduction of the adult care, health and wellbeing budget just days before Royal Cornwall Hospital revealed it was facing its latest bed-blocking “crisis”.
The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust, and other organisations that work alongside the council, will attend the meeting, which will also be open to members of the public.
