April news

Council restructure:  Mid Suffolk and Babergh District Councils are currently consulting on restructuring plans at the management level which is expected to result in about a 40% reduction in staff at that level.  This nearing the end of restructuring in terms of reducing numbers of managerial staff across the two councils.  Those reporting to this managerial level are the operational teams that deliver the actual services.

Young people:  Issues around young people and opportunities for work are being addressed by a Working Group of the Scrutiny Committee (that I chair).  The group hosted a workshop involving private, public and voluntary sector organisations across Mid Suffolk and Babergh districts.  It is planned to recommend some coordinated initiatives particularly to help with increasing the amount of apprenticeships and work experience programmes in our area.

Very young litter-pickers:  As you read this I hope the area around the Playing Field will be clean and free of litter as the Beaver Scouts (aged 6 to 8) will have been litter picking with me at the end of March.
