Newcastle City Council has outlined its latest budget plans.
It has to save £100 million pounds over the next three years, after having its own budget cut by the government.
A public consultation was held at the end of last year where people were asked to comment on initial plans.
After processing more than 50 thousand comments, today the council revealed its revised proposals.
They include; closing the city pool and relocating users to nearby facilities, keeping the care centres Cheviot View and Castledene open for at least 12 months, and retaining the City Hall.
Five libraries (including Dinnington and Denton Burn), however, remain under threat of closure unless community groups or organisations take them over.
The proposals will be discussed by the council cabinet at the end of the month, and the full council on March 6th.
