CHANGES to Barnsley's music service, resident parking permit schemes and dog warden patrols have all been announced as part of council budget cuts.

Councillors will vote this week on whether the latest round of cuts will be approved.

It inculdes plans to save £175,000 by cutting the numbers of staff Blackberry devices.

Barnsley Music Service will lose £208,000 in financial support and Barnsley Civic Enterprise £20,000.

Residents' parking permits will increase by 50 per cent while burial and crematorium fees will go up by six per cent.

Dog warden cover will no longer be 24 hours, instead ceasing at 9pm, resulting in the kennelling of stray dogs only being available from 9am-9pm.

The latest round of cuts puts a further 27 jobs at risk of redundancy across a number of council departments, bringing the total to date to 162.

Leader of the council Sir Steve Houghton said: "Budget decisions are getting more difficult every time, and there is little flexibility left."
