Stoke-on-Trent City council plans £100m cuts in four years

A consultation has been launched by Stoke-on-Trent City Council into plans to save £100m over the next four years.

The authority has already made savings of £77m in the last three years.

It is unclear what council services are under threat. People living in the area have six weeks to say which services they think should be protected.

Council leader Mohammed Pervez said between 1,100 and 1,200 jobs had been cut at the council in recent years out of 5,500 jobs.

He said it was unclear how many more jobs might be cut in the next round of savings.

"The financial pressures being imposed by government are not easing," Mr Pervez said.

"We'll be working through the proposals (after the consultation) and hopefully early November we'll be able to announce those proposals."
