Norfolk County Council budget consultation criticised
Norfolk County Council’s decision to consult the public over a further £16m in savings has slammed as “confusing” and “disgraceful” at a meeting of an oversight panel.
The authority's scrutiny committee ‘called-in’ the Conservative-controlled cabinet’s decision to put plans for 2020/21 budget proposals to the public and said there was not enough detail to merit an informed response.
The plans will see a further £15.8m in savings, on top of just over £31m already agreed.
