political Away Days now involve two parties ;-)
So; a joint Labour-SNP Friday afternoon spent discussing a combination of Governance Structures, Welfare Reform impacts, and our 2014/15 Budget.
All uplifting stuff :-(
On the positive-side, as mentioned a few weeks ago, we are on track to publish our draft 2014/15 Budget figures by mid-September: at the 'Finance and Budget Committee' of Thursday 19th September to be precise!
All of which will leave a full 3-months of dialogue on the draft, up to Friday 20th December.
Much more detail to follow, via the Council's main website, very soon.
