Cornwall Council: no decision on beauty spot budget cut
CORNWALL Council says it has not made up its mind to push ahead with swingeing budget cuts at a Plymouth beauty spot.
As reported in The Herald yesterday, there are fears that cuts could put the future of Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park in jeopardy.
The estate is on the Rame peninsula, a short ferry ride from Plymouth, and is owned and run jointly by the city council with Cornwall Council.
The county is considering slashing £66,0000 a year for three years from its share of the £384,000 annual budget.

A Cornwall Council spokeswoman said yesterday that no decision had yet been made.
"There is a proposal by the council to reduce the subsidy for Mount Edgcumbe by £66,000 for the 2013/14 financial year as part of the authority's proposed budget," she said.
"No decision has yet been made.
"The council will meet to decide on February 26.
"The proposal is also subject to agreement with Plymouth City Council and Cornwall Council is now engaging with Plymouth on the consequences of a reduction in the subsidy."
