Notts County Council are currently holding a “Big Budget Conversation“. It all seems a bit like Turkeys voting for Christmas but it would be good if people could increase the amount of anti-cuts messages on
this. The council will also be revealing further cut plans next week. Continue reading “Notts County Council “Big Budget Conversation” – add your comments!”

These ‘consultation’ sessions talking place all across Nottingham in October (click ‘continue reading’ for all venues/dates/times) are supposed to be a chance for residents to express our views on City Council cuts. Nottingham City Council is also running a “Your City, Your Services” online survey at http://www.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=11782 where the idea is to get our opinions about what should be cut in the city! Obviously a strong no cuts message is needed at these.
