COUNCIL leaders will face questions on the upcoming budget on Tuesday (March 27).

Neil Parkin, leader of Adur District Council, Paul Yallop, leader of Worthing Borough Council, and chief executive Peter Latham, will be grilled by the joint overview and scrutiny committee.

The meeting will be held at the Civic Centre, in Ham Road, Shoreham, from 5.30pm on Tuesday. It is open to the public.
