Cardiff to cut management posts

  • Comment

Cardiff Council has announced plans to lose three senior managers as the first step in reducing the size of its workforce.

The authority announced its plans shortly after finding out that it would receive a small increase in funding over the next three years from the Welsh Assembly Government.

Council leader Rodney Berman (Lib Dem), left, said the 0.1% increase in funding next year was “certainly better than we were prepared for”.

Original estimates of a £34m budget gap in 2011-12 have now been scaled back to about £19m, he said.

However, much of the increase would be used up providing services to Cardiff’s increasing population and cuts to the council’s budgets would still be implemented.

Councillors agreed last week that three second-tier management posts would be made redundant before April before a review of third-tier management begins.

The council has also invited applications for voluntary redundancies and Cllr Berman said he expected around 200 to be accepted next year.
