Pembrokeshire council: Local authorities need 'radical rethink'

A council in west Wales has asked the public how to save £50m over the next four years.

Over the next six weeks, a public consultation will be held in Pembrokeshire and residents can make their suggestions at drop-in sessions.

It comes as the Treasury cut funds to the Welsh government, who has then been forced to slash the cash it hands on to local councils.

Pembrokeshire must save about a quarter of its £200m net expenditure.

It said a radical re-think is needed about how local authorities operate.
