MILLIONS more pounds well worth of slices are on just how Neath Port Talbot council services.

The authority deals with being forced to make £18 million in cost savings in the next economic 12 months and more than £50 million of cuts in the next four many years because of harder spending constraints.

Council leader Steven Phillips warned that with these proposals, discretionary solutions such swimming pools, leisure centres and neighborhood centres were in competition with statutory services like education.

He said: "What we might like to do is get these proposals out to the communities as soon as possible to get the dialogue began with those communities."

Proposals being put forward include slices to youth solutions, increased parking fees combined with the neighborhood transfer of even more libraries, community centers and bowling pavilions. But issues had been raised within the risk of compulsory redundancies, one thing the council has been attempting to stay away from considering that the slices began.

On September 30, the council launched its early retirement/voluntary redundancy system in a quote to reduce compulsory redundancies.

Councillor Alun Llewelyn said the reference to compulsory redundancies reflected the severity of scenario experienced because of the council.

He said: "We have constantly attempted to stay away from compulsory redundancies. We have to be very, very worried if there are any leads of compulsory redundancies into the expert."

Councillor Mike Harvey stated he didn't need see community centres along with other facilities near, however the council had almost no option. He included: "i really do not need to do this but we ain't got a choice. Each one of these cuts were enforced on us by the Tory national.

"From 2010 to 2018 we cut £100 million of your spending plan. The slices we face tend to be positively huge. We don't want to make these choices but we surely got to stabilize the books."
