Dacorum Borough Council is not yet sure how it will be affected by a 10 per cent cut in government funding for local authorities.

The council’s cabinet will discuss how to prepare for the cut at a meeting on Tuesday, July 23.

The finance axe, which affects all local authorities in the 2015 to 2016 financial year, was announced last week by the government.

Dacorum’s financial services manager Paul Sutton said: “We will continue to look for new ways to deliver services for less to ensure there is minimum impact to services we deliver to residents.”
