THE offices of Sheffield Council’s North East Community Assembly are closing today to save £2 million over the coming year.
Sheffield Council has decided to close the seven assemblies and axe support staff as part of £50million of budget cuts in 2013-14.
Hannah Isherwood, of the north east assembly team, said: “As from March 28, the North East Community Assembly Office in Firth Park Library will be closed.”
She said all enquiries should be directed to Alison Rayner on 0114 203 7562. All other phone numbers will be disconnected. Anyone with information for the blog can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Sheffield Council plans to offer support to individual councillors for work in their wards, to replace assemblies.
