Middlesbrough Council to Cut Archaeology Funding
The list of proposed cuts suggests that withdrawal from Tees Archaeology will save ?23,000, which isn't a huge amount of money out of the ?13,800,000 Middlesbrough is trying to save. And didn't Tees Archaeology lose a couple of members of staff fairly recently, presumably in an attempt to reduce the charge to each of the Councils that contribute to the service? If Middlesbrough goes, presumably they'll either have to shed more posts, which I'd imagine would make it difficult to provide a decent level of service as one or two people would be covering the work formerly done by four or five, or they'll have to put up the charge to the other Councils, which is likely to lead more of them to pull out, making the situation worse. I too hope something survives, but I worry that Middlesbrough may just be the first domino, and their withdrawal will result in the other councils deciding that they can't afford the service either.:face-crying:
