Dear Arun District Council,

The Leader of the Council this morning announced cuts to services and/or the frequency of services later this year due to the financial impact of coronavirus. In the light of that pressure I would like to ask which growth items identified in the 20/21 budget as agreed in March have been postponed or cancelled?
In addition has a recruitment freeze been introduced and have any other restrictions on expenditure been made?

Yours faithfully,

Derrick Chester

Infomanagement, Arun District Council

Dear Mr Chester

 

Thank you for your Information Request received on 7 May 2020.

 

REQUEST:

postponed or cancelled?

 

In addition, has a recruitment freeze been introduced and have any other
restrictions on expenditure been made?

subject of Member consideration, the reports for which will be published
in line with constitutional requirements.
