Notts County Council has made protecting the vulnerable it’s main priority as it unveils its first detailed budget since announcing it had to make £154 million of savings over the next three years, due to Government cuts.

But approximately 750 jobs are at risk as a result of the budget proposals, although 269 of the affected posts are currently vacant as a result of strict new vacancy rules introduced by the council last summer.

The budget details how the council will reduce its spending by £83 million over the next three years, £57 million of which will be reinvested to meet on-going, spiralling demand for services to care for the elderly and protect vulnerable children.
