Community safety and environment and waste services are among those residents want to see protected from budget cuts.

The initial findings of the Redbridge Conversation were noted at a cabinet meeting at the town hall last night.

More than 500 responses have been received so far through online budget tool You Choose, with suggestions from the public including spending less on education overall, increasing fines for dropping litter and reducing the number of councillors.

A further update will be given at a meeting in February.

The cabinet also noted the programme of activities to celebrate the borough’s 50th anniversary, agreed the consultation process to create a draft leisure and cultural strategy for 2015-19 and agreed to take no further action on proposals to introduce a U-turn ban at the second turning point in Clayhall Avenue.
