Cash-strapped Northamptonshire County Council has agreed a raft of cuts in an attempt to find £111m in savings by 2021.

Since issuing a Section 114 notice to stop all non-essential spending, the council has drawn up a range of proposals. This includes plans to sell and lease-back its new headquarters to help fund adult social care costs.

The proposals also include wide-ranging fees, cuts and closures.

In a budget report, the council's finance director Mark McLaughlin warned: ‘In this financial climate and faced with difficult decisions, some savings and income generation proposals within this budget may have a negative effect on groups with protected characteristics.’
