The charts show the proposals drawn up for each committee at County Hall in January.

The cuts for financial years 16/17 onwards are proposals, whereas the 15/16 figure are the savings made in the last year by each committee, which total more than £36m.

The graphics show that much of the pain over the next three years would not be felt until 2018/19, with £46m of the £123m of identified cuts after 15/16, coming in that year.

Adult Social Care is the hardest committee hit with more than £68m of cuts.

Councillors will be debating the cuts at County Hall today.

Services for older people and children, Norfolk fire stations and the future of libraries and museums are at risk because Norfolk County Council needs to save £111m over three years. The proposals have deliberately identified more than the £111m which need saving.
