Cost-cutting review into Cradley Heath museum

First published in Local

A REVIEW of historic Sandwell buildings including Haden Hill House Museum in Cradley Heath is being carried out as part of the council’s cost-cutting measures.

Recommendations will be drawn up in time to go before the council next month.

The impact on jobs and opening times is not yet known, but the report will prioritise events held at such buildings by looking at those with the highest number of visitors.

A number of areas of the youth, culture and leisure department are currently under the microscope after it was revealed Sandwell Council needs to make £75 million of savings over the next four years.

Libraries could be closed and staff made redundant in a bid to save almost £1m, with job losses, closures and reduced opening hours all options being considered.
