‘Encouraging’ response to council cuts survey
There has been an encouraging response to Fenland District Council’s consultation with residents on where it should find £1.8 million worth of savings.
More than 3,000 people had completed survey forms indicating which services they feel could best be reduced to close the funding gap.
Responses are still coming in, both online and by post.
There are just under two weeks to go before this consultation ends on October 26.
The results will be collated and used to help shape further consultation.
The questionnaire is available online at www.fenland/gov.uk/consultation.
Council leader John Clark said: “We’re very pleased with the response so far and hope more residents will send us their views over the next few days.
“Our task then will be to look closely at everything people have said.”
