Bristol Mayor George Ferguson has announced his new cabinet, which now features members from four political parties.
George Ferguson proposes parking zones across Bristol
The Bristol City Council Labour Group has reacted angrily to Mayor George Ferguson's budget cuts, announced yesterday:
– Cll Ron Stone, Deputy Leader of the Labour Group, Bristol City Council
The Mayor once promised to protect the poor and vulnerable in this city but there's precious little sign of it with massive cuts to children's centres, older people and disabled people. [...]
This on top of a massive restructuring of the workforce and the loss of about 1000 staff - many of whom will be providing essential services. This will create a huge dent in the city the Mayor claims to be so proud of - when he appeared to appeared to promise the exact opposite by negotiating a better deal from government for Bristol. It is a very bleak future.
Residents in Clifton Village and Clifton West can view the proposed plans for their residents' parking scheme.
The Council said this is the opportunity for residents and businesses to influence the proposals.
