The future of a number of Lichfield District Council services are set to be decided this evening.

The local authority is bidding to plug a £1.7million hole in its budget.

A petition had forced the council’s Cabinet to revisit the plans to reduce or remove a number of budgets in areas such as leisure and play and community services.

But only community transport has been spared the axe, with councillors set to vote on the proposals this evening (August 13).

    Reductions to Leisure Services budget. Yet the council continues to pay Vision, a private company, £75000 to give people a tour of the fitness suite and show them how to complete a direct debit form. Councillors are voting on these budget cuts? Can’t wait for the local elections.
