One of Camden Council’s six youth centres will be forced to close as part of a £1.1million cut in youth provision over the next three years.
Cllr Georgia Gould, cabinet member for young people, presented plans to cabinet earlier this month to cut £500,000 from the youth service between 2016 and 2017, followed by a further £648,000 the following year.
It will mean one of the six council-run youth centres in Camden will have to be closed.
Cllr Gould said: “We are going to look at the provision and see where there’s duplication so it may be that there is some amalgamation. We want to be upfront with people.”
The council will consult on the proposals between January and April before publishing a final plan.
