More on the HDC budget consultation

HDC has done a wonderful thing. It has actually got a consultation which generally works. What is missing is how HDC got into this mess. The talk is about the coalition and central government cuts. Nothing about the trouble HDC was already in with its finances with £6.1 million already pencilled in for cuts. The coalition cuts will just add to these problems.

What is also missing is the context of these cuts. What we are looking at are cuts to the front line services. The cuts to the back office are already deemed to have taken place.

Completing the consultation gave me the realisation of what HDC does and what could be cut.
