How would you save £100m?
A COUNCIL leader has urged residents to take part in a Monopoly-style game to decide how to save £100m.
Durham County Council is running budget consultation sessions around the county at which people are invited to use a 32-place Monopoly-style board to decide how to cut the authority’s budget by a quarter by 2017.
Speaking at a full council meeting, council leader Simon Henig urged people to attend their local event.
The next few events are as follows: November 2, Wolsingham School and Community College, 10am to 2pm; November 9, Park View School in Chester-le-Street, 10am to 2pm, and Witham Hall in Barnard Castle, 10.30am to 3.30pm; November 16, Bishop Auckland College, 10am to 2pm, and St Patrick’s Church Hall, Victoria Street, Consett, 10am to 2.30pm.
