Milton Keynes Council has announced plans to cut 600 jobs in a bid to save £48m over the next three years. The cuts are blamed on government cuts in funding. The council hopes to minimise the need for compulsory redundancies and to redeploy staff where possible. Consultations with service users and staff will take place in December.
