Ealing Council’s recent cabinet meeting has agreed a package of investment in town centres, and a range of cuts.
The investments agreed included £1.7million over the next two years to improve local shopping parades and £800,000 to upgrade Ealing town centre, which has been partly funded through the Dickens Yard development agreement.
Councillors also agreed proposals that will deliver savings of £5.7million and invest-to-save proposals of £1.3million by April 2016, which contribute to the £85million savings target.
In this latest round of budget reductions, 119 staff have been put on consultation at risk of redundancy. The council is streamlining management structures and the amount being spent on senior management is being cut by 30%.
