More budget cuts will mean up to 300 jobs could go at Barnsley Council in a move the leader brands as 'unavoidable.'
Coun Steve Houghton said there was no way of avoiding another round of redundancies as £16m of cuts is forced on it by the government.
He said: ''Three hundred jobs are at risk across all areas of the council though we will do everything we can to minimise the numbers.
''The unions know what the scale of the problem is and we will be working with them to ensure there is as much redeployment and voluntary redundancies as possible. At this stage we can't rule out an element of compulsory redundancies.''
Already there has been argument over draft proposals to axe school crossing controls across the borough which have now been removed from the agenda following protests led by Cabinet member Roy Miller.
The council has said that the newest cuts will bite into front line services that will affect local people - What services do you think could be cut? And what would you miss if it were axed?
