Cambridge City Council is considering plans to share services with district councils in a bid to find savings and retain services.
The council is exploring proposals to share ICT and legal services with South Cambridgeshire District Council and Huntingdonshire District Council, and has already announced plans for a single shared waste service with South Cambridgeshire.
Cllr Lewis Herbert, leader of Cambridge City Council, said: ‘Sharing services with other councils can be the best way to retain and improve services that are essential for our residents.
‘With a 40% reduction in government core funding for the council we have to find ways of making further savings for at least the next four years.’
Going forward, the council will also examine the feasibility of shared HR and revenues and benefits services.
