Dear colleagueI am writing to bring you up to date with the impact of the recession on current andfuture public sector spending, and outlining what immediate and future action isgoing to be required of us all in order to maintain high quality services in challengingfinancial times.If I begin with looking at the medium term financial plan for 2011/12 and beyond youwill be aware from consistent national media coverage that public sector spendingwill need to be reduced in order the balance the national budget. No matter whichgovernment is returned at the next election, they have all been clear in articulatingthe need for public sector funding cuts. This will affect a wide range of organisationsincluding local authorities. We are anticipating a significant budget gap in themedium term but this could well become larger as our income streams reduce andthe demand for our services increase.In order to prepare for this, I have asked strategic directors to prepare for scenarioswhich could see 10%, 15% and 20% reduction in budgets. We are not alone andyou will be aware that other local agencies are also taking a hard look at their financial position. I am encouraging directors to think creatively across our ownservices but also drawing partners into solutions that help to maintain high standardsof service to our city.I hope that you will actively take part in discussions with your management teams tocontribute to the solution.
