Have your say on borough council planned cuts

WORRIED locals will be given the chance to tell Hastings Borough Council what they think of the authority’s planned cuts.

The Observer revealed earlier this month how the council was looking to cut 46 jobs amid a raft of cutbacks.

Council leader Jeremy Birch described his draft budget as “the most difficult I have ever been involved in” and said that decisions on where and what to cut had been taken in line with the feedback from a recent survey.

However, there has been criticism from some corners about how representative that survey was.

Cllr Birch is therefore holding a drop-in sessions for people to make their feelings known.

It will take place on February 8 at the town hall next to Priory Meadow starting 10pm.
