South Holland leaders face up to cost impact of COVID-19 which could be as much as nearly £4.1million for the year
South Holland could be facing a near £4.1million financial headache from the coronavirus crisis, according to a new report.
Lost income from car park charges, street markets, planning application fees and the hiring out of Spalding's Ayscoughfee Gardens, as well as extra costs like temporary accommodation for the homeless, is set to leave a sizeable dent in the area's budget for public services this week.
During the first-ever virtual meeting of South Holland District Council's cabinet on Tuesday, viewed by nearly 600 people, it was confirmed that a funding gap of between nearly £1.8million and £4.08million was expected for the 2020-21 financial year.
