What ESCC say about the cuts the Conservative have imposed on the county:

“£10m cuts are also proposed for Adult Social Care, seven libraries and the Mobile Library have closed, £400k has been cut from the budget for grass cutting and Early Help services for vulnerable families are being reviewed with an expectation of £2.6m savings being delivered. The Director of Children’s Services has made it clear that he does not think it is right to identify additional funding for East Sussex Music by cutting other statutory services”.
