Councillor Max Deckers-Dowber to the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, Councillor Jane Edbrooke

Supplementary Question

Councillor Deckers-Dowber asked what communities could do in order to work with the Council as there was likely to be a Β£20m government funding shortfall this year, and therefore co-operative management of green spaces was essential.

Supplementary Answer

Councillor Edbrooke responded that the Council was still committed to co-operative values. The Council was looking at losing Β£55m in funding and would therefore need to work with residents to ensure services were delivered. Rosendale Playing fields, for example, was looking to set up a community interest company in order to take over the lease and raise money to ensure future investment.
