Nottingham Council to cut more than 150 jobs

Nottingham City Council has announced 154 jobs will be lost as part of emergency plans to save an additional £12.5m.

The council said the Government has failed to fully cover the costs of the coronavirus pandemic, forcing it to make ‘difficult’ decisions to deliver a balanced budget this year.

The savings plan also includes delaying the employment of apprentices until next April, closing a day centre for people with disabilities, closing Bulwell hall Golf Course, and charging for a third residents parking permit.

Cllr Sam Webster, the council’s portfolio holder for finance, said: ‘I’m shocked at how appallingly badly the Government is treating communities across the country at this time of need. Our key workers are being massively let down by the Government’s failure to deliver on its clear promise to fully cover the costs of Covid.

’We are having to put forward some extremely difficult proposals today, but we’ve been determined to protect universal free services for our residents where possible and we’ve prioritised those services upon which our most vulnerable residents rely, including care services for older people and employment support for young people who find themselves out of work.’
