Local Authorities in Wales
WALES’ councils are facing the toughest financial climate in years, experts have warned, as they prepare to cut more than a massive £175m from next year’s budgets.
Financial plans for 2011/12 are set to be confirmed within weeks, with proposals showing libraries, leisure centres, public toilets and care homes are likely to be hit hard.
Overall, councils in Wales are looking to cut 3.5% of their 2010/11 budgets, though efficiencies needed vary from £1m in Pembrokeshire to almost £22m in Cardiff.
Newport is facing the biggest cut – 6.68% – with councillors looking to save £1 for every £15 it spent in 2010/11, as it looks to save £15.9m
