More details from petition creator

It is our position that years of artificially reduced council tax and austerity policies from central government have put the Borough in its current financial position where it has to strip £6.8 million from its spending in the next financial year.

Instead of displaying prudence, the Council has continued to waste residents' money on lost planning appeals; paying for legal advice against itself when Councillors have voted in error and putting up self-congratulatory banners on lamp posts in the Borough.

We do not believe that residents or employees should be made to shoulder the cost of this incompetence.

We call for the full council to censure the Cabinet; reject the proposed budget and negotiate with the full Council (as elected representatives of residents') and the staffs’ trade unions to find acceptable alternative measures. The cabinet is instructed to reprioritise the budget with a stronger remit on cutting unnecessary expenditure to mitigate against staff redundancies and cuts to essential services.
