Cardiff Council will meet to set its budget today. Campaigners against proposed budget cuts will hold a protest outside the meeting.
Proposals to save money include selling Flatholm Island and facilities such as Splott Swimming pool and Cardiff Riding School.
In a statement, the council said the budget proposals have been 'extremely difficult'.
The Council's budget for 2013/14 will be set on Thursday February 28 at the meeting of full Council at City Hall.
Proposing the 2013/14 budget has been extremely difficult as the Council faces steeper cuts than ever before which means some difficult decisions will need to be taken to ensure that our frontline services, such as schools and social services, are protected. We also understand the strong feelings that some of Cardiff's citizens have had on some of the issues the budget proposals have raised.
