WALTHAM FOREST: Two weeks left to give views on council cuts
RESIDENTS have two weeks left to give their views on where the council should make spending cuts.
Waltham Forest Council agreed last month to slash budgets as the authority prepared to lose £65 million over the next four years.
They launched the 'big conversation' following the Government's plans to slash funding to local authorities.
Leading councillors admit the authority will not be able to provide all the services it has before and are asking residents to suggest priorities.
The council says the questionnaire aims to give those living in the borough the chance to influence future policy.
Residents can access an online tool which allows them to set the budgets they think individual service areas should have. So far almost 700 people have completed the survey.
The council said it will consider all the responses.
