Shropshire Council meeting over £60m budget cuts

Shropshire Council is due to meet later to discuss how to cut £60m from its budget over the next three years.

The council will be looking at cutting staffing costs and reviewing management roles.

Areas thought likely to be the hardest hit are transport, education and the house and planning delivery grant which is used to fund major planning inquiries.

Keith Barrow, council leader, described the situation as "a challenge".

The savings are to offset cuts in public spending, the council has said.
