North Somerset Life magazine faces possible cuts
- Credit: Archant
North Somerset Council is considering reducing the frequency of its magazine publication.
Deputy leader, Mike Bell, says cuts to its North Somerset Life magazine may be introduced to help the council cope with reductions in Government funding.
He said: "With regards to North Somerset Life magazine, we are of course looking at all areas of the council to identify areas for further savings.
"There are still significant savings to be made over the next four years, and we have already asked officers to bring forward proposals for reducing the frequency of the magazine."
The magazine used to be published monthly, but was scaled back to four quarterly and two seasonal editions a year, following a Government instruction to all councils.

Cllr Bell, back in 2014 when the order came and not on the executive, described the Life magazine as 'a needless propaganda vehicle produced at taxpayers' expense', and dubbed its content 'spoon-fed nonsense'.
