PCC to visit Fakenham and Dereham this week as fire governance consultation continues


The 'A Case for Change' consultation on fire service governance in Norfolk ran for eight weeks from 11 July 2018. It closed to responses at 5pm on Wednesday 5 September 2018.

There will be more opportunities for the public to have their say on the future of fire service governance in Norfolk this week as the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) continues his tour of the county.

As his ‘A Case for Change’ consultation reaches its half-way point, PCC Lorne Green will be spending time in Fakenham and Dereham seeking views on his proposal to become Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, taking over the governance of Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service from Norfolk County Council’s Communities Committee.

The PCC will be in the following locations this week:
  • Tuesday 7 August – Fakenham Town Centre from 11am to 1.30pm
  • Wednesday 8 August – Dereham Town Centre from 2pm to 4pm, followed by an open public meeting in the Memorial Hall from 6pm.
Lorne is also planning to be in Morrisons in Diss on Tuesday 14 August (10am to 1pm), and Swaffham market place on Saturday 18 August (10am to 3pm)

“It is important to me that I hear the views of the people of Norfolk, key partners and stakeholders before I make any final decisions,” said Lorne.

“It’s been very interesting and really useful speaking face-to-face with so many members of the public already. I look forward to meeting with and exploring the views of many more before the consultation closes next month.

“And, of course, the survey on my website will remain live for the duration of the consultation for anyone wishing to have their say in that way.

The ‘A Case for Change’ consultation closes on Wednesday 5 September 2018.
