Historic all party deal to set Notts budget

For the first time, politicians from all parties will work together to deliver a budget for Nottinghamshire County Council.

The agreement between the leaders of the Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Independent groups will see members of all parties settling this year’s budget proposals from beginning to end.

This is the first time in the council’s history that councillors who don’t belong to the largest party will be involved in the whole budget setting process.

They have to find a way to cut  £62 million from council spending over the next four years.

These cuts will be in addition to the £112 million saved by the council since 2013.

The cross-party budget proposals will be developed over the coming months and are set to be made public at the Council’s Policy Committee in December.
