A Fairer Funding Deal for Lincolnshire

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

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

This could help pay for new infrastructure and valued council services.

For example, £116 million could pay for a bypass scheme or major road improvement schemes across the area every year. Just a small proportion of that funding could provide fibre broadband to every business.

Councils in Lincolnshire have seen huge cuts to their Government funding and the cost of providing services is increasing. Council leaders are meeting with local MPs and government ministers to set out the case strongly for a fair deal for Lincolnshire.

What can I do?

You can help Lincolnshire councils get more money for your local services, by contacting your MP to tell them you support the campaign.
