Derbyshire County Council cutting £6m

A Cabinet report at Derbyshire County Council in September identified that the council planned to make savings of £6.1m in 2010/11. Contrast this with Notts County Council who are cutting £33m from the budget in 2010/11.

Both councils were Labour controlled for over 15 years until the elections in June 2009, when the Conservatives took control in both councils. Both councils are very similar sizes. One is cutting £6.1m and the other is cutting five times more.

Why the difference?
