Plans to cut adult social care funding by £730,000 in East Sussex are to go out to public consultation.

Proposals to consult on removing the subsidy for meals in the community - currently received by about 750 people across the county - and a review of long-term support for working age adults were approved by East Sussex County Council's lead member for adult social care and health earlier.

Both proposals will now be subject to 10 week public consultations.

The consultation into the meals in the community subsidy will begin on 28 May, while the consultation on long-term support for working age adults will start on 4 June.
