Nottingham City Council has apologised after an investigation found it took staff five hours, to call an ambulance for a stroke sufferer.
Councillors in Nottingham are today expected to give final approval to controversial changes to the school year in the city.
Protests will take place as Nottingham City Council meets to vote on budget cuts for 2014/15.
The council's executive board agreed to make savings of £25.5m for the next year which will now be put forward to a full council meeting.
More than £99m worth of cuts have already been made in the last three years with Deputy Leader, Councillor Graham Chapman, warning as much as £35m will need to be cut next year due to Government funding cuts.
Council Tax is also expected to rise once more to 1.95% while cuts will be made for children's services and adult social care.
New homes and shops are to be build at Robin Hood Chase in St Ann's, after Nottingham City Council granted planning permission.
Developers, Wilmott Dixon, have been granted permission to build 45 apartments, three retail units - including a new supermarket - and a public square.
Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of Nottingham City Council, said:
I visited Robin Hood Chase in December to see first hand the demolition work that is already underway...
... I am pleased that the redevelopment of this site can start to progress now that planning permission has been granted, and look forward to seeing the redevelopment work taking shape to bring this site back into full use.
More than two and a half thousand youngsters will be getting an extra Christmas present this year thanks to staff working for Nottingham City Council.
The presents have been donated as part of the Council's Christmas Stars appeal and will be given to children who are in care.
Nottingham City Council's Executive Board will today decide whether or not to contribute £50 million towards the redevelopment of the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre.
Last week the council revealed plans for new shops, restaurants, cinemas and improved transport links including a new tram stop.
Two years ago, the council was in the final stages of plans for the transformation of the shopping centre before it was sold to Intu, the owners of the Victoria Centre.
If the city council's contribution gets the go ahead, work could begin in 2015 and be completed by 2017.
The board will also examine plans for a £14 million bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund ahead of the proposed regeneration of Nottingham Castle as well as £2.23 million in funding for the redevelopment of Sneinton Market.
Nottingham City Council says it faces a further £55m of cuts in the next two years ahead of its announcement of its 2014/15 budget.
The council says it has already had to make up more than £100m in funding cuts from the Government in the last three years.
It is asking residents for their views on which services are important to them and where the money should be saved.

Nottingham City Council has apologised after the local government ombudsman found it took five hours for one of its care homes to call an ambulance for a stroke victim.
Eileen Rock now lives with her daughter, but her health has suffered.
Mrs Rock suffered the stroke at 7:30am but it was not until her daughter arrived at lunchtime that the emergency services were summoned.
An investigation found the home's manager and deputy were aware of her situation, but both thought the other had called for assistance.
Mrs Rock has been left incontinent and unable to walk and her previous speech and communication difficulties have been exacerbated.
