Impact of cuts in Wychavon 'will be kept to minimum'

The impact of a Worcestershire council's budget cuts on residents will be kept to a minimum, the authority has said.

Conservative-controlled Wychavon District Council said it was working on how to reduce its spending by about £2m.

Proposals include service cuts and management and staff savings.

Councillor Paul Middlebrough, the leader, said ideas were not agreed and were the starting point for talks.

He has led a summit meeting with senior managers and councillors to consider initial thoughts on how the £2m cuts could be achieved.

The authority's senior management team presented a plan as a starting point for discussions.

The proposed ideas including increasing income from the council's assets, increasing income from services, and joint working with other councils.
