Northamptonshire County Council to discuss budget proposals

Northamptonshire County Council is to announce details of its proposed budget for the next four years.

The Conservative-led authority has already said it needs to save around £100m.

It is the first time that the council has set a four-year budget plan.

Earlier this year, lollipop patrols were scrapped, some street light was turned off and subsidies to rural bus services were stopped to save money.

The council, which claims to have one of the lowest council taxes in the country, is a major employer in the county.

The proposals will be discussed at a meeting which starts at midday.
