Still time to have your say on costs

There’s still time for people to give their views on ideas that will save West Lindsey District Council £3 million in the next three years.

Consultation events began this month to find out what people thought of a series of proposals that will prevent the council having to cut frontline services as it explores smarter ways to work.

As previously reported, due to the scale of the challenge being faced – including a 10 per cent cut in Government funding to local councils – the council wants to discuss a range of options with residents around potential changes to some services and other approaches to ‘plugging the gap.

Jerzy Malinowski, chairman of Legsby Parish Council, attended a recent consultation event. He said: “We were more or less agreed in the various decisions that were proposed, but it would have been good to see a lot more people there to get a more representative sample.

“The consultation is purely for the general public, what they want and how they feel. There may be points the council hasn’t thought of and that’s why it’s so important.”
