Have your say

Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner wants as many people as possible to have their say on the policing budget for 2014/15.

Residents are encouraged to attend roadshows being until Saturday, January 18, where they can meet the county’s commissioner Clive Grunshaw and have their say on how much they are willing to pay.

An online survey has also been uploaded to the commissioner’s website.

He said: “I hope as many residents as possible will take the opportunity to attend my roadshows, and talk to me and my team in person about the budget and how much they are willing to pay.

“But, I appreciate that will not be possible for everyone, so would encourage any residents who can’t attend to make their voice heard through the online survey.”

The commissioner is considering raising council tax by two per cent as he looks to make up a £20m budget deficit by 2017/18. The online survey is available at www.lancashire-pcc.gov.uk/Surveys/Consultation-on-Council-Tax.aspx.

Details of the roadshow can also be found on the website at www.lancashire-pcc.gov.uk/News-and-Events/News-Archive/2013/Commissioner-to-hit-the-road-for-Budget-Consultation.aspx.
