UK/ Manchester City Council / 830 jobs at risk

Plans to cut 830 jobs, raise council tax and close libraries have been announced by Manchester City Council in a bid to address a funding gap of £80m.

The proposals could also see bus lane fines “more actively” pursued, bonfire events stopped and departments merged.

The job losses follow the cutting of 2,000 posts in the past two years and would mean the council workforce had been reduced by almost 30% since 2011.

Council leader Sir Richard Leese said the budget cuts were “inescapable”.

Cuts of £170m are already due to be made between 2011 and 2013.
