Dismal outlook for public amenities

Filed under: Local Government,Policy — lenand @ 11:47 am

The Local Government Association (LGA) has published a most depressing scenario of what the public can expect from Local Authorities (LAs).  It is all based on the projected funding for 2019 – 2020.

They have looked at “unavoidable statutory obligations” as the foundation and deemed  it to cover social care and environment(waste) only.  Look at the rate that non-statutory services will have their funding reduced.

Projected service money

So that means a reduction of two thirds for treasured things like leisure.  Here’s a percentage view. (Note that schools are excluded).

Shrinking services

The other nasty curve they have produced is the anticipated funding shortfall, based on current projects.

Funding Gap

Nibbling away at reducing the cost of ICT isn’t going to solve this problem.
