Have your say on cutbacks

A SERIES of meetings to discuss cost-saving measures will be held between councillors, business leaders and community groups.

Members of Babergh and Mid Suffolk district councils will be holding the meetings over the next two months to get ideas and hear concerns from those who may be affected by cuts to the budgets of the two authorities.

Babergh’s strategy committee chairman Jennie Jenkins said: “This is our chance to have a really meaningful dialogue with groups and individuals about how our councils can work with communities to maximise the impact of the reduced resources in the longer term.”

The two councils’ 83 elected representatives are being encouraged to meet with people in as many ways as they can, including through meetings, one-to-one conversations, phone conversations, email contacts and social media.
