Cardiff council cuts could provide 'opportunity'

Nearly 600 posts could go and council tax may rise by 5% as Wales' largest authority looks to plug a £41m budget shortfall in 2015/16.

Cardiff council's cabinet outlined its proposals after a public consultation.

Other cuts include reducing the senior management team by a third, cutting £1.1m from youth services and offloading play centres.

The drug and alcohol counselling service could become volunteer-led but seven libraries no longer face closure.

Ryan Williams, chairman of the Cylch Meithrin Welsh medium nursery at Waterhall youth centre in Fairwater, said the cuts could provide an opportunity to take over the centre and expand.
