Norfolk County Council Consultation

The invisible consultation

Apart from one Twitter post there was no public announcement of the consultation on Tory Norfolk's huge budget cuts and 4.9% council tax increase proposals. If you can find the consultation buried on Norfolk County Council website, information is scant. The way it is set out is designed to discourage responses.

Labour opposes austerity that causes the cuts. Whatever the causes, Labour believes in your right to have a say - not have the wool pulled over your eyes as Tory Norfolk are doing.

Here's a simple, plain English guide with web links to the council version. 

Consultation closes on January 2nd 2018

Please let us have your comments on the proposed Tory cuts to Children's Centres and Library Services

Tory proposal: Slash the budget for Children's Centres by 50% but not saying which ones will close or who will lose services. Vague language about remodeling and targeting those in need. This also hides plans to cut Library services without saying where and how. Mobile libraries threatened. - https://norfolk.citizenspace.com/consultation/childrenscentres/
