Consultation over £154m cuts
People living in Nottinghamshire can have their say from Wednesday on the planned cuts by the county council.
It needs to save 154 million pounds over the next three years. Its plans to achieve that are now out to public consultation.
Around 800 jobs are being cut at the local authority as part of the cutbacks, as well as cuts to adult social care, budgets for libraries and leisure services and also young people.
Watch: 800 job cuts in £154m savings plan by Notts County Council
Three hundred and fifty more jobs are to go at Derby City Council as it has announced a further 9 million pounds in cutbacks.
The council set its budget in January but is having to cut further services because it's getting less from central government than it previously thought.
And now things like the city's Christmas lights and bin collections are under threat. Chris Halpin reports.
Council considers fire merger
Warwickshire County Council has announced that in the next four years there will be job cuts, with a maximum of 627 positions being removed.
The Council also says compulsory redundancies are inevitable but it hopes this will be through natural wastage.
In the last three years, the Council has lost 1500-1600 staff. At present, the Council employs around 7500 people excluding schools.
