Council supports Fairer Funding for Lincolnshire

A campaign to secure fairer funding for Lincolnshire was supported at South Holland District Council's full council meeting on 1 November 2017.

The campaign has been launched by Lincolnshire councils to lobby Government for a fairer funding deal.

Cllr Malcolm Chandler, Deputy Leader of South Holland District Council, said: "Lincolnshire is one of the lowest funded areas in the country and I firmly believe that the government needs to develop a new funding formula which would benefit all councils in the county.

"We are supporting a united move to lobby ministers and MPs for a fairer funding deal to benefit us all for years to come."

If Lincolnshire received the average funding for council areas in England, the region would benefit from £116million extra funding for services, every year.

Council leaders are now meeting with local MPs and Government Ministers to set out the case strongly for a fair deal for Lincolnshire.
