Budget cuts

Decision Maker: Healthier Communities Select Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Resolved: the committee agreed to note budget cuts proposals COM 3 to COM 7 and refer its views on COM 1 and COM 2 to the Public Accounts Committee in the following terms:


The committee notes the greater demand on voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations which would result from the proposals in COM 1 and COM 2 and expresses concern about the impact of funding reductions for VCS partners (as set out in COM 12) at a time when they are being expected to do more. Given this, the committee requests that Mayor and Cabinet does not decide to make these budget cuts until it has carried out and considered an assessment of the extent to which VCS organisations will be able to meet the increased demand as a result of the proposals in COM 1 and 2.
