Counci우리카지노ls urged to back super review call
But while Mr Hunt wants to get it right, the government is also pushing hard against changes that would allow councils to control the speed and quality of water usage.
As part of its Water Transformation plan, the Liberal Democrats also urged council officials to put aside some of their extra money in funding savings to help councils tackle rising water bills, but so far they have refused.
Mr Hunt has also made a series of attempts to pressure the environment minister over the Government’s climate change strategy.
There are concerns the plan is too ambitious as well as too tight on funding savings, so a debate about cuts is being called.
Liberal Democrats on council water boards
There are fears the Government’s Climate Change Strategy will have the local authority water boards struggling for cash
But the Water Transformation plan calls for councils to spend their extra money to ensure they meet targets, with local authorities to cut water bills by 20 per cent by 2020/21.
Cllr Michael Tufield has said: “The Liberal Democrats encourage communities to take on board their watapronxer우리카지노 board’s role in supporting their communities and are proud to stand with them in this debate.”
It follows comments from local authorities chief executive Fiona Bruce that the Conservative government’s Climate Change Strategy “is only likely to bring more pain” for the local authorities.
Local authorities are struggling to meet the Government’s £1 billion target for increasing water savings, with local authorities using a smaller proportion of capital spending.
Cllr Andrew Jones has called for the Liberal Democrats to make it clear the Government is not getting on with making money up through higher water usage through cuts, rather it’s “making money up by not spending any more than we could ever do”.
Mr Jones said: “These Government policies are leaving the country worse off because they are pushing people into poverty and wasting our taxpayers money.
“They’re trying to force on local governments the most unnecessary regulation that they can think of and yet it’s creating so many problems in so many communities.”
But some local authorities are planning to defend their budget decisions with less than £500m a year.
