Craven people will be able to make their views known on North Yorkshire County Council’s spending plans and priorities at a consultation event next week.

Councillors and officers will explain the financial challenges facing the authority and how plans to tackle them.

The council is already in the middle of a four-year programme to reduce spending by £69m by 2014/15, but it now anticipates it will have to find an extra £22m in savings over the next two years.

“We have now reached the stage where we will have to look at every service,” said council leader Coun John Weighell.

The consultation will be held at Belle Vue Mills, on Broughton Road, Skipton, next Thursday, at 6.30pm.
