Halstead: Resource centre at risk from youth service cuts
11:00am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
A well used resource centre could be under threat as a council prepares to make huge cuts to its budget.
Essex County Council (ECC) wants to reduce its youth service budget from £5million to £2million a year, just 18 months after reducing it from £12million.
A consultation into the service could put facilities such as the Halstead Resource Centre, in Parsonage Street, at risk.
Joe Pike, county councillor for Halstead, said: “There is another huge cut proposed and I am fearful of the effect of it."
