In the final proposals ahead of next week's council Budget, the Labour Group has announced:
- a freeze on parking permit charges for low emission vehicles and car clubs
- a reprieve for the popular children’s Playbus
- funding to improve standards in private rented accommodation
- more money for animal welfare, for supporting survivors of domestic violence and for engagement activity to deliver the 4-year Adult Social Care direction of travel
Council Leader Warren Morgan said "We have worked until the last minute to ensure every penny available went back into services and the priorities we set as an Administration when we were elected last May. I hope the opposition parties on the Council will put politics aside and back these budget proposals for the good of the city."
