It's grim up North!

Had a busy few days of meetings with colleagues based in the North East and North West of England, in order to keep in touch with what is happening on the ground in these troubled times.

Firstly met up with a Director of Environmental Services from one of the Lancashire authorities and he was in the midst of this years budget cuts. He explained to me how the triple whammy of a tight financial settlement from central Government along with falling revenues from charged for services and the implementation of concessionary travel schemes added up to some of the severest cuts he had seen in years.
