The full business case – developed under Phase 2 – was presented to PCC Lorne Green in July 2018.

After careful consideration, the PCC was convinced there was enough evidence for ‘A Case for Change’ of governance and on Wednesday 11 July he launched a consultation to give the Norfolk public the opportunity to have a direct say.

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

The results of the consultation process will be published on the OPCCN website in due course.

Having considered the consultation responses, the PCC will then decide whether he wishes to proceed with his proposal and, if so, submit a ‘final business case’ to the Secretary of State.

The Secretary of State will then consider whether the case made is in the interests of economy, efficiency and effectiveness, or public safety, and, if satisfied the statutory tests have been met, make an order for the PCC to take on Fire and Rescue Service governance in Norfolk.

If appropriate, submission to the Secretary of State would take place in Autumn 2018.
