Our latest newsletter gives an excellent summary of how the recent budget was set in Cambridgeshire County Council, including the background, the dilemma and decision, and the stand that the parties took. Despite the best efforts of Liberal Democrats and Labour members to protect services, Conservatives, UKIP and Independents pushed through a 2% increase for Adult Social Care only. Sadly, this limited increase will cause real problems for some of the most vulnerable in our society.
Huntingdon District Council items addressed in the newsletter include 1) changes to bin collections, 2) A14 improvements, HDC Council tax increases and 3) voluntary sector funding. There is also an introduction to Rod Cantrill, the Lib Dem candidate for the Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, plus a reminder to all that Council and Mayoral elections are on 4th May. If you are likely to be away, you can apply for a postal vote, so don't forget.
