Green Councillors have proposed 5 amendments to this evening’s budget meeting at full Council. They include taking action towards carbon neutrality by 2030, creating more housing and providing better bus services. A summary is below:
Last year, Green councillors passed amendments to reverse Labour cuts to crisis funds for the poorest people in the city and build housing for children in care. However they refused to vote for Labour’s austerity budget which contained cuts of £34 million across Bristol, including library and public toilet closures and a large funding cut to Adult Social Care. Many of the cuts proposed in this budget are yet to come into effect.
