RENEGOTIATE BROXTOWE'S LOCAL GOVERNMENT SETTLEMENT
TO: ALL PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATES STANDING FOR THE BROXTOWE CONSTITUENCY.
In December 2014, Broxtowe received the worst local government settlement in the UK
( http://www.nottinghampost.com/Borough-faces-biggest-spending-cut-country/story-25737818-detail/story.html ).
This unfair decision puts local front-line services at risk.
We call on all Parliamentary candidates to pledge that should they become the Member of Parliament for Broxtowe in May, they will fight for a renegotiation of this settlement with the appropriate Secretary of State.
Why is this important?
Broxtowe is undergoing great change with centrally-imposed infrastructure projects radically altering the area. The impact of this centrally-imposed, swingeing cut on the local council budget will destroy all hope of mitigating against such changes. Front-line services will be under threat, with the impact being felt by all residents; with the most vulnerable being hit hardest.
