  • Bullet 2. For the UK, total job losses arising from the public sector spending cuts including knock-on effects on the private sector might amount to around 3.4% of total employment (around 943 000 jobs in absolute terms) in 2014/15.
    Research estimates 108,000 public and private sector jobs lost by 2014 in the North West

  • Vision 2030 was developed following an extensive programme of research consultation and engagement with communities, residents and business. It will be important to maintain Vision 2030 through the next few years however challenging.
    Vision 2030
    We see prosperous towns where residents aspire to achieve their dreams for education, learning and employment, with thriving businesses creating innovative products for local and world markets
    We see safe neighbourhoods and town centres where communities and cultures feel connected and feel proud of their identity in Blackburn with Darwen with local people involved in decisions about where they live
    We see clean and green neighbourhoods that make the best use of the worlds resources, with excellent, energy efficient housing
    We see healthy places for communities, where residents of all ages live safe and healthy lives at home work and outdoors, with really good parks, sporting and public facilities that are used by all the community
  • Bullet 1 – direct impact of grant formula and withdrawal of deprivation grant such as Area Based Grant- The Institute for Fiscal Studies report confirms the wide impact on local economies.
  • The services listed do not comprise and exhaustive list of all council services – they are examples of the cost of services.
  • * The national picture, i.e. the 0.4% increase in spending
    * The fact that this small increase isn't enough to meet rising costs of medicine and increased patient demand for health care
    * That as a result the NHS faces a £15-20bn shortfall nationally  which needs to be met by 2013/14. 
    * That our share in the North West is an estimated £2 .1 bn  
    * Unlike the Council, the Care Trust doesn't yet know the amount of savings that will need to be made in 2011/12
    * The Care Trust will find out how much funding it will receive for 2011/12 in late December
  • * The Care Trust has anticipated this and prepared for a zero budget increase in  medium term financial planning
    * The Care Trust has already made £8.9m savings this year - this has largely been achieved through reducing duplication, management cost/back office savings, changes to prescribing in order to protect frontline services
    * The Care Trust has had to make these substantial savings partly to fund investments in local healthcare. This means we have already faced the most challenging year and in future years, while we will still need to make savings, we anticipate fewer savings will be needed.
    * We can achieve more by working closely with our Council partner to reduce duplication and enable services to be delivered more efficiently and effectively
    * The Trust needs to make 36% management and back office staff savings and this process is already underway through the single integrated management team and an organisational change process. Need to refer back here to agreed key messages - i.e. we will try to achieve as much as possible through natural wastage and voluntary redundancy, but some compulsory redundancy will be inevitable.
  • Neighbourhood Consultation – many of those at tonight's meeting have already attended a ward based group discussion about local services and priorities
  • The YouChoose tool will be accessed through the Council Website

    3. 3. Blackburn with Darwen Council Councillor Kate Hollern Leader of the Council
    4. 4. Government Spending Review (CSR) • 500,000 public sector jobs likely to go • Equivalent loss in private sector jobs • 28% four-year cut for local government – with the biggest chunk next year • £7bn in additional welfare budget cuts • 40% cut in for Building Schools for the Future projects • Police funding cut by 16% over 4 years

    6. 6. Vision 2030 • prosperous towns • connected communities • clean places • safe and healthy people
    7. 7. CSR impact for your council • It is a huge challenge – deprived towns in the north will be hit harder • Bluntly this means a cut of £48m over the next four years • The bigger cuts will come faster with a cut of £29m next year • This year we will spend £48m on adult social care, highways and libraries alone
    8. 8. Tough Choices • Council controllable gross spend for services - £411million • Council controllable net spend for services - £143million • Care Trust controllable gross spend for services £295million • Care Trust controllable net spend for services £286million • We ARE thinking ahead • Cuts of 28% from the Government spending review over four years • This will mean cuts of £48m for Blackburn with Darwen - or 35% of the Council controllable spend for services and £29m next year alone • All the Council services are being closely examined - we will be looking at doing things differently, more cheaply or not at all. • Priority has to be to protect the frontline services that you value and rely on the most.

    13. 13.
