The Guardian: "Eric Pickles recommends 50 money-saving tips to councils"

Link to web site

"The government has outlined 'sensible savings' ideas for councils from opening a coffee shop in the local library to cancelling "glitzy" award ceremonies.

"The 50 tips for town halls from Whitehall also include sharing back-office services, bringing in hot-desking to free up office space to rent out, tackling fraud and clawing back money from benefits cheats.

"The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) is urging councils to scrap the post of chief executive to save money, to end councillor pensions and introduce a recruitment freeze."
