County 2015/16 Budget Set

Oxfordshire County Council, meeting today at County Hall, has voted to save a further £20 million. This saving, caused by Central Government cuts, will be added to previous cuts of £64m.
Savings will come from:
Adult Social Care – £10m
Children, Education and Families more than £3.5m
£7.3m may come out of Environment and Economy
The County is still a large -half billion pound – institution,  but it is now able to deliver little more than statutory services.
As part of the debate we heard of OCC achievements in 2013/14, which include:
Repairing 45,000 highway defects
5,000 care assessments
2,500 trading standards interventions
5,000 fire and rescue incidents.
