New budget will "keep important services" in place

Scottish Borders Council has set out its budget and spending priorities for the next year.

"We have a budget that looks at trying to make savings across all services, but keeps very much in place the important services that people really appreciate.

One major element of our budgetary savings is to look very carefully at staff terms and conditions and a range of different budgets to make sure that we are delivering our services as efficiently as we can."

– Councillor David Parker, Council leader
