Just come across this on Londonist

Mayor Steve Bullock, re-elected on the back of a local Labour landslide, has said cuts will be the "worst in living memory". The council has to reduce spending by 60m over three years, which is 1 out of every 4 currently spent in the borough. Understandably, bloggers have been looking at the detail.

Alongside the sad and unsurprising job losses (aren't our social workers, et al, already massively overstretched?) are proposed cutbacks everyone will be able to see. There's outcry over the proposal to close five libraries. Blackheath, Crofton Park, Grove Park, New Cross and Sydenham are the ones under threat

Further details can be found in the Public Accounts Select Committee Report and on Sydenham Town

Hopefully the Pools are OK as they are being paid for out of the Capital, rather than Current programme.
