Gloucester City Council agrees to £4m cuts to budget

Cuts to the coming year's budget in Gloucester have been agreed by the city council.

Councillors said savings of £4m over 2011/12 would need to be made from its £18m budget.

The authority, which is run by a minority Conservative administration, needs to save £6.5m over the next three years.

The council employs about 460 people and said 75 full-time equivalent posts would go during 2011/12.

Plans for a 5% staff pay cut were abandoned at Thursday's meeting.
