Successful Labour Budget Amendments
Successful Labour Budget Amendments

At tonight’s annual budget-setting council meeting, Labour Councillors have secured some big wins for residents.

Through campaigning, listening to residents and championing our communities, we have secured cross-party support for our plans that significantly improve the 2023/24 City Council budget.

We’ve won support to:

🚽 Invest £1.1m in public toilets
💻Save service helping disabled into work
🛟 Reverse cuts to lifeguards & Volks Railway
📚 Block return of children’s library fines
➕ More…!!

Labour prepared a series of budget amendments to invest in basic services like public toilet refurbishments instead of flushing money away on vanity projects, to save the Supported Employment team that helps those with learning disabilities find and retain jobs, to support tourism and our visitor economy by reversing cuts to lifeguards and Volks Railway, tackle disadvantage by blocking the return of children’s library fines and more.

At tonight’s budget council meeting, after Labour Councillors made a series of passionate and persuasive speeches, Labour worked cross-party to get these vital measures to improve outcomes for residents into the council’s budget.
