Ashfield council budget consultation closes today
The CAB’s chief executive Sue Davis and chairman Peter Robinson handed over the petition of more than 2,000 signatures to the council’s deputy chief executive Dave Greenwood yesterday.
Ceasing to provide grants to voluntary bodies and community groups is one of 14 proposals put forward by the authority to save it £1.1m.
They will see a 21 per cent cut in grants by 2015/16.
