The Isle of Wight Council is to host a live Q&A session on Facebook to allows residents to question members on the council’s budget.

The council, which must find savings of £28m over the next three years, is inviting questions from the public on the way services will be re-shaped.

The session will take place 18 February between 6-7pm with council leader Ian Stephens, deputy leader Steve Stubbings and managing director Dave Burbage.

Cllr stephens said: ‘The public is well aware that the council faces making major changes to the way it provides services. This means we must re-engineer the way we do things as well as being innovative.

‘We are keen to give the public a further chance to ask questions and suggest ways forward and using social media is a great way of doing that. We are also holding this outside of office hours so as many people as possible get the chance to log on.’
