UP to 447 re­dun­dan­cies could be made at Sefton as coun­cil­lors be­gin the process of cut­ting £64mil­lion from the coun­cil’s bud­get.

Coun­cil Tax could also rise, with coun­cil build­ings sold and some ser­vices re­duced, as the very na­ture of the lo­cal au­thor­ity changes.

Leader Cllr Ian Ma­her said: “The stark re­al­ity is that with a fur­ther £64mil­lion to find over the next three years we have even more dif­fi­cult choices to make.

“Peo­ple must un­der­stand that we can­not do ev­ery­thing we have done in the past.”
