PCC wants your views on fire governance as he tours county

As his consultation on the future governance of the county’s Fire & Rescue Service continues, Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Lorne Green will again be out and about across the county this week seeking your views.

Norfolk Fire & Rescue Service (NFRS) is currently governed by Norfolk County Council’s Communities Committee. Under the PCC’s proposal, Lorne would become the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (PFCC) with a pledge to give the NFRS operational and financial independence while ensuring it retains its cultural identity.

Believing this is a much better way of working for a safer Norfolk, the PCC launched his eight-week ‘A Case for Change’ consultation on 11 July to find out what the Norfolk public, key stakeholders and partner agencies think.

Lorne will be at the following locations this week to speak with members of the public and invite them to have their say by taking part in the survey:

  • Wednesday (1 August), 10.30am, Sainsbury’s, Pound Lane in Thorpe
  • Thursday (2 August), 11am, Tesco superstore in Great Yarmouth
  • Friday (3 August), 10.30am, Tesco superstore in King’s Lynn
  • Saturday (4 August), 10am, Tesco in Stalham

“It is important to me that I hear the views of the people of Norfolk and key partners before I make any final decisions,” said Lorne. “It has been really positive having the opportunity to speak face-to-face with so many members of the public already. As I continue my tour of the county, I hope as many people as possible will have their say. I await their views with interest.”

The ‘A Case for Change’ consultation will run until Wednesday 5 September 2018.
