Lewisham council sets out second round of budget cuts proposals


The report is extensive however well worth skimming through.

"With cuts of over £40m, it is inevitable that some services will be reduced or stopped.
This may amount to a pause so they can be revisited at a future date, funding
permitting. However, within the anticipated financial resources for the Council in the
near term there is not the funding to maintain current levels of service. "

See 7.21

Timetable and Decisions

The timetable for this round of officer proposals is for this report to be reviewed as pre scrutiny with feedback, via the PASC, to M&C on the 3 February alongside the budget report for 2021/22. The Safer Stronger Committee will also consider the consolidated equalities report (to follow separately) for the cuts report as a whole. The specific scrutiny committee dates are:
13 Jan Healthier Communities
14 Jan Safer and Stronger
Sustainable Development
21 Jan CYP
28 Jan Housing
02 Feb PASC

What they have seemed to have missed (unsurprisingly) is a reduction of the Mayor's, The Executive, Directors and Heads of Service salaries, which are frankly eye wateringly excessive. Perhaps all senior salaries should be reduced to say £50k per annum and frozen for the next seven years.
